Description

A wonderful Reserva that offers unbelievable value. It has a nose of dark plums, cedar and hints of tobacco, and on the palate it is beautifully elegant and light on its feet. Incredibly balanced and smooth. Aged in French oak barrels for 24 months, plus 16 months of bottle ageing.

Raimundo Abando of Bodegas Las Orcas used to compete in triathlons at an international level, but now puts all his energy into producing and ageing some very elegant Rioja. He is the 3rd generation of winemakers in his family, dating back to 1900. Most of the production is Tempranillo but he also makes a great-value white from Viura and some wines contain a touch of Graciano. The Rioja Alavesa is sheltered from the hotter conditions lower down the Ebro valley by the Cantabrian Mountains, enabling Rai to make wines with higher acidity, lower alcohol and more freshness.
