La Rioja Alta “904” Rioja Gran Reserva 2000

R2,900.00 inc. VAT
"Bright red. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of raspberry, cherry compote and pipe tobacco. Smoky, sweet and penetrating, offering intense red fruit flavors that take a darker turn to cherry-cola with air. Closes sweet and long, with resonating spiciness, supple tannins and a whiplash of vanillin oak." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

La Rioja Alta “Lagar de Cervera” 2018

R250.00 inc. VAT
"Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. Ample, forthright nose, highlighted by the typical varietal aromas of the Albariño (ripe apples and pears, stone fruit, particularly apricots) and a remarkable citrus background. Lively, fresh and structured in the mouth, with well-integrated acidity. Very persistent aftertaste, where hints of exotic fruit (lychees) make their appearance." - Producer Note

La Rioja Alta “Viña Ardanza” 1989

R3,250.00 inc. VAT
"There is a touch of Grenache in the 1989 Vina Ardanza Reserva. The wine's medium garnet color reveals an amber edge. A sweet, caramel, smoky, strawberry, tobacco, and tar-scented nose is followed by an elegant, round, medium-bodied wine with good richness, refreshing but soft acidity, and a heady, nicely nuanced, layered finish. Readers must recognize that this traditionally run firm tends to make wines that have spent considerable time in oak, and are much lighter-colored, more mature, and clearly ready to drink when released. The antithesis of modern-day fruit and oak-driven wines, they are all characterized by soft, tobacco, cedary, cigar-box-scented noses, with sweet fruit, and light garnet/ruby colors with amber edges. However, do not judge these offerings by their feeble colors, as they are very aromatic, and their flavors are nuanced and complex." - Robert parker Jr., Wine Advocate

La Rioja Alta “Viña Ardanza” 2000

R1,750.00 inc. VAT
""Fading medium-red color. Cherry-vanilla, tobacco and dried raspberry on the nose, with subtle baking spices, cedar and herbs adding complexity. Suave red fruit flavors are sweetened by vanillin oak spices and gently propped up by silky tannins. An understated wine that's sure to be dismissed by those who find ostentation in wine a virtue, but this will work wonderfully with grilled or braised meats, or not-so-strong cheeses. And the length of this Rioja is pretty sneaky." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous
