2016 Vina Ardanza Reserva, La Rioja Alta
£29.95 per bottle


Gran Reserva quality at a Reserva price
The 2016 Vina Ardanza Reserva has just arrived on our shelves. A firm favourite at Grand Cru Co, Vina Ardanza offers superb value for lovers of old style classic Rioja
La Rioja Alta was founded in 1890 in Haro, in the heart of La Rioja, by a group of 5 local families, including the Ardanza family after which Vina Ardanza was named. The first vintage was in 1942 and subsequent vintages have made this the winery’s most famous wine.

Only released in the best vintages, Vina Ardanza is a classic example of traditionally made Rioja. A blend of 80% Tempranillo, Spain’s leading grape variety and 20% Garnacha, the wine exhibits classic fruit flavours of cherry and raspberry with a spicy note of pepper and vanilla due to the 30 months of ageing the wine receives in American oak.
The beauty of Rioja is that is ready to drink on release and this wine is not exception. For those of you with space in your cellar though,  this will age beautifully for at least another 10 years so why not buy a case or two to see how it evolves.
Perfect with lamb chops, Ardanza is also a great pairing with other roast meats, barbeques and aged cheese
The 2016 Vina Ardanza is available in store and online for £29.95. You can also try a bottle in our lounge for £39.95 (including corkage) – it would be delicious with one of our cheese and charcuterie platters!
