La Rioja Alta : Vina Arana Gran Reserva 2014

A fresh and aromatic Rioja red wine

The estate

Founded in 1890 on the initiative of 5 families, La Rioja Alta is a reference among La Rioja wines. Elegant, aromatic and balanced, the wines produced by La Rioja Alta are recognised for their complex and authentic expression of fine Spanish wines.

The wine

Vina Arana Gran Reserva 2014 by La Rioja Alta is a Rioja wine that stems from a selection of vineyards located in the villages of Las Cuevas, Rodezno and the Montecillo estate in Fuenmayor.

The vintage

The particularly mild conditions at the beginning of the year favoured the vegetative development until veraison. Subsequently, the weather remained unstable until the harvest.

Vinification and ageing

The hand-picked grapes are cooled before vinification. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in steel vats. The wine is aged in fourth-fill American oak barrels for 3 years, with a traditional racking every six months. Final blending was completed in April 2018 prior to bottling in June 2018.

The blend

Tempranillo (94%)

Graciano (6%).
