Rioja Reserva, ‘Vina Ardanza’, La Rioja Alta
Selective harvest in crates and refrigerated transport. After both
fermentations, the wine was barrelled in April 2005. The Tempranillo wine
spent 36 months in American oak barrels with an average age of 4 years,
and the Garnacha wine was aged for only 30 months in 2 to 3 years old
American oak barrels so the freshness and authenticity of this grape
variety could be maintained. The wines were manually racked six times
and bottled in December 2008.
