La Rioja Alta Viña Ardanza is a renowned Spanish wine that comes from the La Rioja region in northern Spain, which is known for producing some of the country’s finest wines. Viña Ardanza is one of the flagship wines of the La Rioja Alta winery, a prestigious and traditional winery with a long history dating back to 1890.

Viña Ardanza is a red wine that exemplifies the essence and character of the Rioja region. It is made from a blend of two classic grape varieties: Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). The exact proportions may vary depending on the vintage, but typically it contains a majority of Tempranillo with a smaller amount of Garnacha.

The wine undergoes a meticulous and traditional winemaking process. The grapes are handpicked from the estate’s vineyards, ensuring that only the finest and ripest fruit is selected. After fermentation, the wine is aged in a combination of American oak barrels and French oak casks for an extended period. This extended ageing allows the wine to develop complex flavours and aromas while achieving a harmonious balance.

Viña Ardanza is known for its elegance, finesse, and remarkable ageing potential. It displays a beautiful ruby-red colour in the glass. On the nose, it offers a captivating bouquet of red berries, cherries, and plums, complemented by hints of vanilla, spice, and cedar from the oak ageing. The palate is rich and velvety, with well-integrated tannins and a refreshing acidity that brings vibrancy to the wine. The flavours of ripe fruits are accompanied by subtle notes of tobacco, leather, and a touch of minerality, adding depth and complexity to the wine. The finish is long, lingering, and satisfying.

Food pairing suggestion: Lamb tagine with vegetables.
