Varietals: Tempranillo 100%


This legendary estate specialises in aged Reserva wines grown in Rioja’s coolest subregion and from its onsite cooperage to racking by candlelight the attention to detail is staggering. The Alberdi (named for one of the founding Basque families) his intense flavours of strawberry and raspberry, giving way to vanilla, smoke, cedar and caramel; on the palate its slightly sticky fullness is balanced by its refreshing acidity and the tannins here are gentle and velvety.
