Characteristics of Viña Ardanza

Viña Ardanza is a red wine produced by the winery La Rioja Alta, in the D.O Rioja.

The winery was established in 1890 from 5 families from Rioja and the Basque country, they are mainly based in the historic Barrio de la Estación de Haro (La Rioja), although from 1996 they have a winery in Labastida (Álava).
Viña Ardanza is produced from Tempranillo (80%) and Grenache (20%).

The Tempranillo vines are 30 years old and originate from the estates: La Cuesta and Montecillo, located in Fuenmayor and Cenicero (La Rioja Alta). The Grenache vines on the other hand, originate from Tudelilla (La Rioja Baja) planted at 600 meters above sea level.
La harvest is completed by hand and transported in refrigerated containers to better conserve the grapes.

Once in the winery the must is fermented at a controlled temperature for 15 days.

The grape varieties are aged separately. Tempranillo is aged for 36 months in American oak barrels, and Grenache for 30 months also in American oak.

The wine is manually racked, up to at least 6 times before being botted.

This wine is nternationally highly rated, year after year by prestigious critics such as Robert Parker and Wine Spectator.

Tasting notes Viña Ardanza

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 exceptional vintage of a great Riojan classic. This is one of the best vintages this century, which has led the winery to classify it as “Special Selection”, which has only happened 3 times before. A concentrated red wine that is powerful but also subtle and silky. An essential wine for getting to know the most classic Rioja style.
Viña Ardanza 2009 continues the classic Rioja Reserva style. A red wine that is concentrated and subtle at the same time. The tertiary aromas of the ageing are evident and the rackings have given it complexity and an ethereal profile. An essential wine to understand a classic Rioja.
Viña Ardanza 2008 offers the complexity of its ageing in the classic Rioja style. The passing of time and the continuous racking make this wine full of nuances. A delicate wine, but with complex and deep aromas, where time has polished the purple and reddish tones into subtle orange strokes. A wine to understand the classic Rioja style.
Sight Intense cherry with a pinkish rim. Clean and bright. Nose Good aromatic intensity, highlights of pleasant toasted aromas combined with spicy notes and ripe fruit. Rich and complex. Taste Fresh, balanced and light. Smooth, unctuous and velvety. Fine sensations of red fruit. Round tannins and good acidity. Persistent Finish.
Sight A ruby red colour with rosy edges. Clean and bright. Nose High intensity on the nose. Clean aromas with a presence of ripe black fruits in perfect balance with the toasted notes from the aging. Complex and pleasant.
Taste Viña Ardanza 2005 has a magnificent structure and is balanced and round from the very beginning. Ripe, polished and very-well integrated tannins. A noticeable acidity adds freshness. Long and persistent finish. An absolute classic. To be enjoyed.
Sight Ruby red colour with rosy edges. Clean and bright. Nose In the nose, clean medium-high intensity aromas are noticed. Its notes of ripe black fruit are balanced with the elegant toasted notes and the refreshing balsamic hints provided during the ageing. Complex and very nice wine. Taste This Rioja wine’s magnificent structure is balanced and round from the very beginning. Its good, ripe, polished and well integrated tannins are noticed along with a significant acidity that provides this set with freshness. Long lingering finish. A classic and highly enjoyable wine.
Sight

  •  
    08/11/19 Viña Ardanza Selección Especial 2010 Not tasted yet Arrived yesterday
  •  
    06/11/19 Viña Ardanza Selección Especial 2010 This is going to be superb in a few years time. Right now, fresh out of the box it is feeling a little disjointed, with the oak not really integrated yet but then it will be suffering from travel shock and I couldn't resist opening one so it's entirely my fault
  •  
    05/11/19 Viña Ardanza Selección Especial 2010 2010 has reputation as an 'excellent' year for Rioja, but could not say that this was any better than the 2009 Ardanza, which is also good. Both vintages currently priced similarly.

    01/11/19 Viña Ardanza Selección Especial 2010 Had a 2009, medium body, great nose, low tannin. Looking forward to sampling the 2010
  •  
    12/11/19 Viña Ardanza 2009 Beautiful taste, full body, as good as a top Rioja should taste.
  •  
    25/09/19 Viña Ardanza 2009 This wine is one of my favourite wines and never disappoints. I think the 2008 vintage was slightly better but the 2009 is still a 5 star wine and is delicious.
  •  
    15/04/19 Viña Ardanza 2009 Vita Ardanza wines are delicious. This 2009 is nearly as good as the 2008 which was superb.
  •  
    21/07/18 Viña Ardanza 2009 One of the best rioja never let's you Down
  •  
    29/01/18 Viña Ardanza 2008 I love this wine, better value than the more expensive Alta's
  •  
    20/08/17 Viña Ardanza 2008 Smooth velvet with vanilla
  •  
    20/08/17 Viña Ardanza 2008 I personally love the old style riojas. Ardanza never fails.
  •  
    10/06/17 Viña Ardanza 2007 Really smooth and elegant red, I would definitely recommend it
  •  
    10/12/16 Viña Ardanza 2007 I have been drinking Ardanza for years and the Ardanza has never let me down. I started with Ardanza 2004 and since that vintage, I have bought wines from Rioja Alta ever since... It's a heavy wine, so I only drink it with strong cheese after dinne, as a grand finale - sometimes we drink the 904 gran reserva from the same house. Perfect
  •  
    12/08/16 Viña Ardanza 2007 Again really good value. In terms of comparing against other old world wines
  •
