product Details

La Rioja Alta "Reserva 904" 1973 Gran Reserva

In 1890, 5 families from the north of Spain, each passionate about wines, established the Sociedad Vinícola de La Rioja Alta - The Wine Society of the Rioja Alta.  A few years later, in 1904, one of these founding-members proposed the merger of his Ardanza winery with the society and thus the creation of La Rioja Alta S.A.

The "904" range is today one of LRA's flagship wines, second only to the exquisite "890" - both of which are released only in exceptional years. This wine is from the 1973 vintage, a blend of old-vine Tempranillo (90%) with Graciano (10%) which has been matured for 4 years in American oak barrels.
