More information about 904 Gran Reserva DOCa - La Rioja Alta

The 904 Gran Reserva from La Rioja Alta is an outstanding, excellent and very elegant red wine cuvée from the Spanish wine region DOCa Rioja. This wine is vinified from the Tempranillo and Graciano grape varieties. 

With a strong cherry red and garnet shades, this cuvée presents itself in the glass. The nose is enchanted by a very intense and expressive aroma. The bouquet reveals plums and ripe grapes, jam of blackberries and red raspberries, which give way to spicy and balsamic notes of tobacco leaves, licorice, vanilla, chocolate, cedar and ground coffee. Very balanced with a pleasant fresh touch, this Spanish red wine convinces the palate from the beginning. The silky tannin structure is very well bound into the soft body and accompanies into the very long finish. 

Vinification of the La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva

From vines over 60 years old in the vineyards of Briñas, Labastida and Villalba come the grapes for this red wine. 

By hand, the berries are harvested very carefully and strictly selected already in the vineyard. Once in the winery of La Rioja Alta, the berries are first gently destemmed and gently pressed. The must is then transferred to stainless steel tanks and fermented at a controlled temperature for 18 days. This is followed by 94 days of malolactic fermentation. 

Once the fermentation process is completed, this red wine rounds off harmoniously in American oak barrels for 48 months. 

Food recommendation for the Gran Reserva La Rioja Alta 904

Enjoy this dry red wine from Spain with strong meat stews or braised meat in dark sauce and hearty side dishes. But this wine is also a delight with chocolate desserts.
