75% Tempranillo and 25% Garnacha grown high above the plains of Rioja at the foot of Mount Verga. Wines from each plot of vineyards are aged for one year in five year old American oak barrels, and then a further six months in bottle. Vinos Altos has a powerful nose with layers of black and red fruits, leading to a fruit driven palate integrated with a deep minerality and gentle oaky notes on the finish.
Spanish red wine from Rioja Spain, made with Tempranillo and Garnacha.
The Aldenueva Cooperative is from the village of the same name in the Rioja Baja region. Out of the 2500 inhabitants of the village, 900 are farmers who are members of the cooperative and sell their grapes to them. The vineyards are on differing altitudes and soil types, plus some of the vines are between 50 and 100 years old which all add to the complexity of the wines. Quality is paramount at the winery and they test both the grapes and wine at varying stages of the process to ensure the best quality possible. Only the top quality ‘free run’ wine is used for our Crianza. View our selection.
