Rioja Gran Reserva, ‘904’, La Rioja Alta
Tempranillo (90%) from Briñas, Labastida and Villalba complemented by Graciano from our Melchorón I y II at Briones and Rodezno.
After the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, the wine was put into nearly new American oak barrels in June 1996. It remained in cask, being racked by hand eight times until it was bottled in July 2000. The wine was only gently filtered so as to preserve the flavours to the maximum. It may well show a sediment in bottle.
