The La Rioja Alta 'Gran Reserva 904', like its predecessors, is vinified from 90% tempranillo from over 40 years old vineyards in Briñas, Labastida and Villalba and 10% graciano from Briones and Rodezno. After manual harvesting and traditional vinification in stainless steel vats, the wine was raised in a labor-intensive manner. It matured for more than four years in American oak barriques produced on the winery. Since the bottling, the wine has been maturing in the bottle for 5 years. Such a long maturation is unique for a wine of this price range! This Gran Reserva assembly of tempranillo and graciano presents the typical terroir of the region. Together with Vega Sicilia and Tondonia, it is one of the flagships among the great traditional wines of Spain.

To make the highest possible quality of wine, only harvest years are used where the harvest is exceptionally good. When the grapes have a high alcohol content, a good color and optimal aging, the wine will be made. When the wine is ready for use, everything is perfect about the wine. This top Rioja hot has a very fine nose with notes of dried honey , cloves, raisins and wild heather that bloom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a hint of orange zest . It dances in the palate , a memorable Rioja with style and panache . Delicious to drink now (open a bottle an hour in advance), but may also be imposed for another 15 years.
