Winemaker Notes

Medium-depth, cherry red, with a clean, bright pink rim. Intense aromas from a still glass. Swirling reveals jammy notes of wild red berries, raspberries, red currants and herbs against a balsamic background of vanilla, caramel and roasted coffee. Mild entry, with a medium, well-balanced body. Fresh and vibrant, with soft tannins and a harmonious, strawberry jam finish.

Vina Alberdi is characterised by a notable food-pairing versatility. It is an ideal companion to appetizers, snacks and barbeques, perfect with rice, pastas and stews, and great with lightly-grilled meat and fish.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
A classic and tightly knit Rioja with dried berry, spice and cedar character on the nose and palate. Medium body, very fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Acidity carries the wine and then the tannins. Gorgeous.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
There’s a velvety, red-fruited wine behind all the initial oak blackness, yielding notes of forest floor as the wine softens up with air. It remains tight in the middle, needing a grilled sirloin to bring out its complexity.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The entry-level 2011 Viña Alberdi is a blend of Tempranillo from different vineyards with a classical fermentation. The grapes are destemmed and crushed in stainless steel followed by malolactic and aging in new and used American oak barrels for two years. There are some toasted aromas of sesame and sunflower seeds, somehow yeasty, with a bit of a reductive profile that I like very much. They have introduced some changes in the vinification, and since 2010 the grapes have been sourced 100% from their own vineyards. With time, more balsamic notes appear. The palate is medium-bodied with tasty flavors, dusty tannins and moderate acidity. 500,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2014.

La Rioja Alta, Spain
La Rioja Alta Winery Video

Always evolving quality, elegance, innovation, evolution... They are the pillars on which the five founding families erected our winery in 1890 and built a way of living, feeling and producing wines of the highest quality that continue to evolve subtly, perfectly adapting to new tastes. This is how the permanent pursuit of excellence started; a pursuit that continues into the 21st century with identical enthusiasm. We draw the best from our winemaking tradition and wisdom —our own cooperage, manual racking, long ageing periods, etc.— and combine it with the most modern winemaking technology. Today, our wines are an international exemplar of the great wines of Rioja and our brands are present in the best restaurants across all continents.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
