Characteristics of Rioja Alta 890 Gran Reserva
Rioja Alta 890 Gran Reserva is a red wine from D.O. La Rioja, produced by Bodega Rioja Alta in Haro, one of the areas with the highest concentration of wineries in the world.
Rioja Alta 890 Gran Reserva is a great wine from La Rioja, here they only produce some vintages that are considered extraordinary.
The wine is a coupage of Tempranillo (95%), Graciano (3%) and Mazuelo, produced from their own old vines that are more than 40 years old and planted in the Riojan town of Rodezno. There are farmhouses with very poor, limestone soils that have a low yield production, very loose bunches and small grapes, but they are of a great quality.
A great wine is born from a great selection, and in this case the selection began with the vines. The harvest is done by hand and they select the best bunches, these are then transported to the winery in small refrigerated boxes that ensures the grapes remain intact.
Once it has undergone alcoholic and melolactic fermentation, there is a new selection. Only the best wines are chosen for the aging. The aging takes place for 72 months in American oak barrels, 20% are new and the rest are four years old, manufactured by hand by the cooperage in the winery.
After applying 12 racking, there is a new selection. Only the best barrels become a part of this coupage of Rioja Alta 890 Gran Reserva. A great selection that ends up with only 15,900 bottles produced. Rioja Alta 890 Gran Reserva does not pass through any filtering system, they intend to preserve all of its aromas.
Selection, selection and more selection with a 6 year aging in the barrel makes this wine stand out as one of the great classics in La Rioja.
