La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Reserva 2010

 

Description

 

The grapes were picked manually and the selected clusters were placed in boxes and immediately transported to the winery in refrigerated vehicles at a temperature of 14 °C. The Bordeaux model was applied, destemming, crushing and vatting the grapes in tanks where they underwent alcoholic and malolactic fermentation under controlled conditions. The wine was aged for two years in American oak barrels manufactured in-house; the first year in new oak and the second in barrels averaging three years in age. The wine was manually racked four times by the light of a candle. It was bottled in December 2014.

Medium-depth, cherry red, with a clean, bright pink rim. Intense aromas from the still glass. Swirling reveals jammy notes of wild red berries, raspberries, red currants and herbs against a balsamic background of vanilla, caramel and roasted coffee. Mild entry, with a medium. well-balanced body. Fresh and vibrant, with soft tannins and a harmonious, strawberry jam finish.
