Characteristics of Viña Albina Reserva

Viña Albina Reserva is a red wine from the appellation of origin Rioja produced by Bodegas Riojanas.

This is a centenarian winery, funded in 1890 and is located in the town on Cenicero, in the heart of the Rioja Alta.

Viña Albina Reserva is produced from the varieties Tempranillo (80%), Mazuelo (15%) and Graciano (5%). The grapes originate from vineyards from Cenicero, Sonsierra and Villalba de Rioja.

For production, the wine is produced using traditional methods. The grapes are selected, destemmed and then crushed to be macerated and then fermented at a controlled temperature.

After this process the Viña Albino Reserva is aged for 24-30 months in American oak barrels with racking when appropriate. Subsequently, spend a further 12 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes Viña Albina Reserva

It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Dark, deep ruby red. Nose Large aromatic intensity with presence of ripened red fruit. Spiced and toasted notes with a milky base. Taste On the palate, it is a fleshly and pleasant wine. Fruity and enveloping. Good acidity and the tannins are well integrated. Very well balanced and elegant.
Sight Ruby coloured with brick-red edges. Nose On the nose, it is elegant. There are notes of aging and vegetal undertones. Taste In the mouth it is acidic with refined tannins. It is a well-balanced wine.
Sight Ruby colour with brick red edges. Bright. Nose Elegant nose, harmonious aromas with nuances of the ageing and varietal tones. Taste Fine and well constituted wine in the mouth. Great acidity and polished tannins, very balanced.
