FANTASTIC RATING FROM VINOUS MAGAZINE 91 points – Rioja Vega Viejas Añadas Gran Reserva 2008

February 2019. Rioja Vega Viejas Añadas Gran Reserva 2008 receives an excellent rating from American VINOUS magazine.

The wine expert Josh Reynolds, founder of the magazine, describes Rioja Vega’s special Gran Reserva:

“Ruby-red. A suave, expansive bouquet evokes dried red berries, cherry, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Round and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering spice-laced red fruit preserve and vanilla bean flavors that deepen on the back half. Shows very good clarity and spicy cut on the clinging finish, which is framed by supple, well-knit tannins”.

Rioja Vega Viejas Añadas Gran Reserva 2008 is made with Tempranillo grapes from the cellar’s own vineyards in which this grape variety has shown a particularly expressive character and outstanding capacity.

The potential of the Tempranillo during the 2008 vintage was so extraordinary, that the winemakers decided to select a lot to produce a 100% Tempranillo Gran Reserva.

After several years of painstaking winemaking, the answer to the team’s intuition could not have been better: Rioja Vega Viejas Añadas Gran Reserva 2008 exceeded the expectations of the Rioja winery, a fact that has been confirmed with gold medals and high ratings. For example, Vinous, Wine Enthusiast, The Wine Advocate (PARKER), Decanter, International Wine Competition, Challenge International du Vin, Mundus Vini, and many more awards of great international significance.
