Viña Arana Reserva

Availability: In stock

Medium, cherry red, clear and bright, with orange tones on the edge of the glass. An intense bouquet, reminiscent of ripe berries and citric fruit; against a mentholated background, with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. Medium-bodied and round to the palate, with sweet tannins blending with the slight acidity typical of the brand. Long aftertaste, with citric and balsamic aromas and flavours that ensure an excellent bouquet after time in the bottle.

La Rioja Alta Viña Arana Reserva
More information:

La Rioja Alta (founded 1890) is one of Rioja’s great names and is still owned by its five founding families. Current chairman Guillermo de Aranzábal has the winery firmly back on track under the guidance of winemaker Julio Sáenz. The attention to detail is paying off. For instance they remain loyal to American oak, which they believe is best for their wines, and since 1995 have returned to sourcing, drying and then coopering their own oak. A new winery was also installed about the same time. The gran reservas 904 and 890 are the top wines; Viña Arana is a lighter style, apparently once known as ‘Rioja claret’.

“One of the World’s Nine Most Trustworthy Wineries” Food and Wine Magazine - 2013 F&W Wine Guide

“Quite simply, these are some of the finest Riojas that can grace your cellar.” Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

"The 2005 Vina Arana Reserva has a fresh bouquet of orange blossom, quince, violets and dark cherries. The palate is succulent on the entry with vivacious maraschino cherry, red currant and blood orange. It displays a very fine build and a silky smooth texture that segues to a poised, mint-tinged, bright and animated finish. Drink now-2020." 93 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
