2014 Viña Arana Gran Reserva, La Rioja Alta, Rioja

The Arana is the only Gran Reserva to be released by La Rioja Alta in 2014, so includes grapes that would otherwise have gone into the 890 or 904 - the best grapes on the estate. On the nose come notes of rose petal and plums, with a hint of redcurrant and notes of coconut. This is a wonderfully fresh and poised Rioja: there’s no heaviness here: rather it’s light on its feet without losing intensity. Long and finessed, it’s a brilliant Gran Reserva, at an outstanding price.

2014 Viña Arana Gran Reserva, La Rioja Alta, Rioja
La Rioja Alta

Founded in 1890, La Rioja Alta is one of this great Spanish region’s icons. Celebrated for the bodega’s twin Gran Reservas (890 and 904) and trio of Reservas, these are long-lived and traditionally-styled Riojas that remain at the pinnacle of the region’s production. Phenomenally age-worthy, and astonishing value, these are Riojas fit to grace any cellar.
