Viña Alarde Rioja Gran Reserva 2013. Gran Reserva is the crème de la crème of Rioja. It’s the level of Rioja which experiences the most oak ageing – giving it the most structure, which gives it the best potential to age. This is aged for three years in oak casks which gives it lovely coconutty spice – and its then aged for another three years in bottle. Such long ageing, care and attention usually adds up to a big price tag, but this is a real steal. Long ageing makes it lighter and means the fresh fruity flavours are complemented by dried, savoury fruit flavours too. Think cherries, strawberries and dried cranberries. Smooth. Full. Lusciously spicy. It’s a fantastic food wine – delicious with simple roast red meat or game..
