Wine Enthusiast praises Rioja Vega’s wines

July 2018. Rioja Vega Gran Reserva 2008 Viejas Añadas and Rioja Vega Colección Tempranillo Blanco 2016 receive outstanding ratings from wine expert Michael Schachner who signs in internationally-acclaimed American magazine Wine Enthusiast.

These two wines were granted 90 PARKER points last March through Parker’s Spanish wine expert, Luis Gutiérrez, in addition to many other awards from wine contests such as the Challenge International du Vin, the Tempranillos al Mundo, or Mundus Vini, as well as high ratings from celebrated Decanter, Wine Spectator or Harpers magazines, to name but a few examples. In Spain, the quality of the wines from Rioja Vega has been repeatedly awarded with excellent Guía Peñín ratings.

Rioja Vega Gran Reserva 2008 Viejas Añadas is the result of an extraordinary vintage for the Tempranillo at Rioja Vega’s vineyards. This cepage has shown a particularly expressive character at Rioja Vega over the years. In some vintages, these qualities become remarkable. Such is the case of 2008, a fine year for Rioja Vega’s Tempranillo. The potential revealed by their vines during that year led the winemakers to select a special production lot of a 100% Tempranillo Gran Reserva. After several years of painstaking care, Rioja Vega Gran Reserva 2008 Viejas Añadas ratifies this decision.

Rioja Vega Colección Tempranillo Blanco 2016 is the result of the relentless research for new expressions of terroir undertaken by Rioja Vega, a key part of a philosophy which has moved this estate forward for over 130 years of history. Kept in few more than four thousand numbered bottles, elegance and finesse, so unconventional as its packaging, are the outstanding virtues of this first 100% Tempranillo Blanco Rioja Vega wine.

A tireless dedication to the vineyard and to terroir as the only architect of quality characterful wines has earned for Rioja Vega these and many more awards that confirm Rioja Vega’s philosophy since its very foundation in 1882.
