A perfect present for someone celebrating 50, or simply a magnificent and rare Reserva to enjoy. It's from an excellent 130 year old bodega and has been kept in perfect cellar conditions. Delicate strawberry fruit with touches of cinnamon spice.
Beyond the Label
Delicate mature berry fruits, spice. Layers of flavour, still fresh
Evolved strawberry hints, light spice, hints of leather and polish
It is immensely rare to fall across a parcel of 50 year old Reserva Rioja. Tasting a bottle, our Buyer Beth could tell it had been kept it perfect cellar conditions. The wine still has its original cork, which may well crumble. That is the norm for fine wines of this maturity. It is fine to push it into the wine - it won't spoil the flavour. This is a gorgeously complex, long flavoured Rioja. It's showing clear evolution – mature strawberry fruit, delicate spice, but still remarkable freshness for its half century years. This wine needs no time to breathe. It will change in the glass and reveal all sorts of earthy, leafy layers of flavour, along with its nuances of mature red berry fruit. Savour with meaty fish or game as a foil.
"Delicate strawberry fruit. A very long finish and incredibly fresh for a wine 50 years old"
