Guest Wine - ‘1999’ Rioja Selection 

 

“Intense, dark ruby colour with a very concentrated berry / vanilla nose and flavours. Full-bodied, rich fruit cake, vanilla, well-structured, mellow, with the fine elegance of the Urbina marque”

“Urbina Seleccion Rioja is a “selection” of the very best Tempranillo grapes from vines over 20 years old that are normally used for the production of the Reserva and Gran Reserva wines”

“The grapes undergo 28 days maceration. The wine is aged for 15 months in new American oak casks, a little bit too early for it to be a Reserva wine. It is bottled as a Crianza but, in fact, bears all the hallmarks of Urbina’s Reserva wines”
