With our Selección Numerada range, we bring you outstanding wine from an exemplary cellar. We don’t name names – tasting the wine is proof of quality. This is the flagship single vineyard Reserva from a great Rioja family, made in a 5-Star vintage.
"Rioja fans, this is a class act. The top wine from this fine family estate. Delicious now, will keep"
Beth Willard Buyer for Rioja
This exciting red is from a state of the art cellar opened in 1999, but owned by a family who have been crafting world class Rioja for 130 years. Indeed, they’ve often been named among the top 50 wineries in the world. The estate lies in the bend of a river, on very stony soil, with a microclimate that’s superb for vines. Treatments are all natural, with hand harvesting and great care in the cellar. This is their flagship Reserva, bottled as a very special Selección Numerada as a thank you to Tony for being one of their first international customers back in the 1980s. 2015 was a generous, early and high quality vintage, so quality is 5 star. Aged for 14 months in mostly French oak barrels, this is a true vin de garde. Open early and decant.
