21.50

Without doubt Viña Ardanza Reserva is one of the most popular and great value Rioja. Beautiful toasted aromas combined with spicy notes and ripe fruit. Rich and complex. Intense red fruit of Tempranillo is balanced with freshness of Garnacha. Smooth and velvety tannins, long finish. A classic and pleasure to drink!

Pedro Ballesteros Torres (Master of Wine): The best classic style of Grenache and Tempranillo pulling together joyful fruit expression and serious depth. In the mouth it is amazingly complex and so unique. A benchmark Rioja blend.

Sarah Jane Evans (Master of Wine): A rich, sweet and savoury Reserva style with all the red cherries and a strong Grenache influence. It is somewhat old-fashioned, in a good way, with plentiful integrated oak and a fine rasp of tannin.

Pierre Mansour: This has a wonderful oxidative style, giving it a superb savoury nose of leather. It is a perfect combination of mellowness versus vigour, and at the same time exudes great finesse.
