Berberana Vina Alarde Gran Reserva 2004 Rioja

This Rioja Gran Reserva has all typical and pleasant characteristics of Gran Reservas. At Berberana they say that after gentle fermentation, this wine is kept in vats for a period of 12 months in order to be fully stabilised before being transferred to oak casks for ageing. Gran Reservas are kept in American oak casks for 36 months. Following this cask ageing the wine will then be aged in bottle for a further 3 years. This is how the process differs from Reservas and that is why you can feel this round oakiness and pleasant spiciness.
