The 890 is a blend of 95 percent Tempranillo, with Mazuelo and Graciano making up the balance. The 890 Gran Reserva 2005 was aged six years in American oak barrels, made at the winery’s own cooperage, and racked by hand under candlelight 10 times along the way. It was bottled in 2012 and released six years later, the 2005 is a textbook example of Rioja’s traditional style and an affirmation of an approach to great wine that requires a significant investment of time and labour.

About La Rioja Alta

La  Rioja Alta traces its roots back to 1890 when five growers from Rioja and the Basque Country founded the Sociedad Vinicola de La Rioja Alta in Haro Station District. One of the growers, Daniel-Alfredo Ardanza y Sanchez, subsequently merged the group with his winery in 1904. The La Rioja Gran Reserva 890 and Gran Reserva 904 serve to commemorate these two significant events, with the “1” is omitted to avoid confusion with the vintage. The group currently owns 425 hectares of vineyard and 4 wineries - 2 in Rioja and 1 each in Ribera del Duero and Rias Biaxas. The La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 is produced in the original winery in Rioja.

 The Gran Reserva 904 is not produced every year and for the 2011 vintage, only 150,000 bottles were produced.
