La Rioja Alta S.A. Gran Reserva 890 2005

The Gran Reserva 890 is La Rioja Alta S.A.’s pride and joy and clearly one of Spain’s greatest and most age-worthy wines. However, the 2005 vintage is a step above most 890 releases as it has been given the label “Selección Especial”. This is only the second time in the 125 year history of the winery that they have honoured a Gran Reserva 890 wine with this special label as they are convinced it is one of their greatest ever wines. The previous Gran Reserva 890 to be honoured with this label was the 2001 vintage; a true Rioja legend.

At 13 years old this sleeping beauty is just starting to drink well but it has many decades ahead of it. La Rioja Alta S.A. waits until the wine is perfectly matured and only when they are certain it is ready to drink do they release it to the market. Waiting for so long to release one of their greatest ever wines means that this is a true milestone release, showing their total commitment to winemaking excellence.

“One of the greatest ever? The new 1964?" James Suckling.

Offered individually and by the 6-pack under bond. Stock due Spring 2018.

"The aromas to this are stunning with dried strawberry, stone and fresh mushroom. Full body and very tight with incredible depth and structure. It goes on for minutes. One of the greatest ever? The new 1964?" 98 points James Suckling Top 100 Spanish Wines of 2017 #7
