La Rioja Alta Vina Ardanza Rioja Riserva 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 1998 Gran Reserva 890 is more or less the same blend and vinification as the 1995 with just a little more alcohol (13%). It has impressive intensity on the nose with lifted dark cherry and briary notes. It has very fine delineation with aromas of licorice and orange rind. The palate is very well-balanced with fine tannins, crisp acidity and lively fresh citrus fresh fruit: small red cherries intermingling with orange zest, marmalade and cassis. It will need several years before it reaches its drinking plateau, but patently has great potential...94" WA 08/12

Soft wood and subdued fruit on the nose; maraschino cherry and raspberry, aged oak palette. Sherry coloured. A fantastic Rioja.
