Made from a selection of the very best Tempranillo grapes from over 30 year old vines used for the production of Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. Aged 15 months in American oak casks and released early before Reserva status, but with all the qualities of Urbina’s Reserva wines. Concentrated aromas of dark berry and fig compliment the full body and rich fruit flavour. The flavour is reminiscent of fruit cake, as the finish brings a lovely splash of savoury vanilla.

 

Organic, suitable for vegans

 

Bodegas Urbina is a small, traditional and family-owned Rioja wine estate. This single estate is located in Cuzcurrita de Rio Tiron on the north-western boundary of DOC Rioja. Urbina has 75 hectares of vineyards at two main vineyard sites – the first site is at Cuzcurrita de Rio Turon, an area well-known for producing Riojas capable of ageing for many years ideal for Gran Reservas. The other vineyards are located at Uruñuela, in the heart of the Rioja DOC, which consistently produces wines of great quality and body. Four generations of the Urbina family had dedicated themselves to producing Rioja wines and, following in his father’s footsteps, Pedro Urbina is the current wine-maker.
