La Rioja Alta "890" 1998 Rioja Gran Reserva 6x75cl / Original Wooden Case
In 1890, 5 families from the north of Spain, each passionate about wines, established the Sociedad Vinícola de La Rioja Alta - The Wine Society of the Rioja Alta. A few years later, in 1904, one of these founding-members proposed the merger of his Ardanza winery with the society and thus the creation of La Rioja Alta S.A.
The "890" range is LRA's flagship wine, released only in exceptional years. This wine is from the 1998 vintage, a blend of old-vine Tempranillo (95%) with Graciano (3%) and Mazuelo (aka Carignan; 2%) which has been matured for 6 years in American oak barrels, re-racked every 6 months with constant re-selections to ensure only the best wines made the final blend.
