Urbina Rioja Reserva Especial 2001
- Rioja Alta, Rioja, Spain

A favourite of ours from Bodegas Urbina this Reserva Especial 2001 is made from grapes harvested from vines over 20 years old. The wine spends 2 years maturing in French and American oak with a further 2 years in bottle before release. The additional years of bottle age has made it a truly stunning wine.
A dark ruby red colour with amber glints. It has a very pronounced nose of seductive figs, apricots, nuts, savoury vanilla oak bouquet. Voluptuous, sweet middle palate with delicious, concentrated ripe berry, mature fruit broadening out. Wonderful length, classy and complex wine.
