Review

Viña Alberdi is a classic and one with character. Describing a wine as classic can sometimes seem too easy or even appear an over-simplification of its personality, which couldn't be further from our intention. It is a classic, three times over: not only in colour, but on the nose and on the palate. Classic as synonymous with having great merits, being particularly appealing, very versatile gastronomically and the sort of wine that always tempts you to come back for more. A classic, and not just another Rioja, this is a wine brimming with fine attributes.

Viña Alberdi exudes an excellent aroma, very fresh acidity and well-integrated oak; it's fruit-forward and has a most pleasant finish, with refreshing notes of pine needles. A wine which, even though it doesn't attain the same seriousness as some of the house's emblematic wines, is certainly not lacking in elegance or seduction. Its aromatic complexity, with aromas of Morello cherries, ripe fruit, orange peel, humus, tobacco, wax and leather, intensifies on the palate and offers a mix of seriousness and sensuality. Adorably classic, and why ever not?

Viña Alberdi is named after Don Nicolás Alberdi, the winery's president from 1947 to 1952, and its first vintage year was 1974.

Just love this

The younger sibling of the the ever reliable Ardanza, this is a a cracking crianza. A real mouthful of rioja fruit but with soft tannins and wood flavours and with no need to uncork beforehand or decant.

Rioja aus klassischem Haus

Ich hatte diesen Rioja schon aus mehreren früheren Jahrgängen kennengelernt und bislang stets als klassisch ausgebauten Rioja geschätzt. Beim Jahrgang 2015 muss ich leider feststellen, dass die klassische Art des Ausbaus offenbar aufgegeben worden ist. Der Wein erscheint deutlich mehr auf gefällig gemacht, der Alkoholgehalt ist mit 14,5% sehr hoch ausgefallen. Leider entspricht das nicht mehr meinen Erwartungen an einen typischen Rioja

Smooth

A wonderful Rioja at an excellent price. Full bodied, full of flavour with a smooth finish. Close to a five star for me.

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta is one of Rioja's historic wineries, creator of such emblematic brands as Viña Ardanza, Viña Arana, Viña Alberdi, Gran Reserva 890 and Gran Reserva 940. All of their wines are excellent and clearly exemplify what it means to be a great Rioja classic these days, in present times. Their wines are elegant, complex and sophisticated like those of the past, but with more body, colour and robustness, wines adapted to the gastronomical demands of today. In short, great...
