‘For my money, this is the best release yet of Finca El Otero, a Tinto Fino which now ranks among the region's very best wines. Wonderfully floral and engaging, with stylish oak and fine-grained tannins, flavours of green herbs, fennel, blackberry and oregano, some stony reduction and a tangy, chiselled finish. A superb effort from the La Rioja Alta team. 2024-2035.’ – Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, 97/100

‘Blackberries with refined black spices, cedar and walnuts on the nose. A medium-to full-bodied, tightly knit palate with velvety tannins and solid black and blue fruit. Very long, polished and complete. Drink or hold.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 94/100

Producer information In 1991, after much research, La Rioja Alta S.A. planted 76 hectares of Tempranillo (locally known as Tinto del Pais or Tinto fino) in the Ribera del Duero region at an altitude of 780 – 830m. The plot is in Anguix near Burgos, which Tim Atkin describes as ‘the home of most of the best wines’ in Ribera del Duero. They chose to name this venture Bodegas Aster after a Spanish flower that blooms at harvest. The first Àster was bottled in 2000 and they now produce a Crianza, Reserva and the premium Finca el Otero.
