Rioja Through the Decades Gift Box
Rioja Through the Decades Gift Box
This Christmas, give your loved Rioja-lover this exclusive gift set and you give something to be truly cherished: a fascinating, three-bottle illustration of how the wines of this most revered Spanish tradition develop in complexity over as many decades. It's an illustration that is as intriguing as it is delicious, comprising three unmissable opportunities for afficionado and budding connoisseur alike to take that leg of lamb, roast of beef or pork to new heights this Christmas. Three that come in a traditionally styled, wooden Mr.Wheeler gift box.
1994 Coto de Imaz, Reserva, Rioja
Twenty-eight years on, doing what mature Tempranillo ought: meaty, pruny, savoury pepper-spice notes on the nose, still with subtle hints of black fruit; on the palate sweet red/dark, peppery fruit driven by an impressively juicy acidity and very gentle grippiness. Lingering sultanas, fig and red fruit on an equally impressive, very clean finish. It will be easy to drink a great deal of this wine. We were little surprised to note the Rioja DOC regulatory board officially rating the 1994 vintage Excellent. It was, and its here.
2004 Rioja Gran Reserva, Bodegas Urbina
This Gran Reserva comes from Bodegas Urbina's best grapes. From vines with a minimum age of 20 years. Great depth and intensity due to being matured in oak barrels for two years and then for a further four years in bottle.
2017 Contino Reserva, CVNE, Rioja
Lush, polished and sophisticated, Contino Reserva is one of the finest Riojas around. Sweet fruit, exotic spice and great depth. Very stylish.
