La Rioja Alta: Of the world’s best Tempranillo, from R340

Of the world’s best Tempranillo, from R340

La Rioja Alta

From superstar producer La Rioja Alta, the 2018 Viña Alberdi Reserva shows why their wines are among the best in terms of both quality and value in Rioja. This 100% Tempranillo is Alberdi’s highest-scoring vintage and their only wine from 2018! 'Which means that all the Tempranillo grapes that were destined for (Gran Reservas) 890, 904 and all the other wines went to this wine. So, this is a super- Viña Alberdi,' explains Wine Advocate’s Luis Gutiérrez.

Since 1890, La Rioja Alta has been known for producing 'some of the finest Riojas that can grace your cellar’, says Neal Martin. 'Complex, refined, classic but without compromising fruit intensity and to reiterate: wines that speak about where they come from,' he continues.

2018 was a cooler vintage, allowing for wines of freshness and juicy acidities, along with incredible depth and fruit intensity because of the special vineyards used for this Alberdi Reserva.

Fill your boots with a case of this fantastic, probably once-in-a-lifetime Alberdi, or try our 'La Rioja Alta Starter Pack'. It’s a pick and mix pack, which means you can easily change the quantities depending on what strikes your fancy. As with all their wines, 'Solid value is the rule here, from top to bottom.' – Vinous
