From the extraordinary vintage of 1970 in Rioja. Bought in Olarra winery, in Rioja. Excellent storage conditions. Fully mature and therefore drinking well now, or cellar for 10-15 years.

Bottle size: Bottle (0.75L)
Number of bottles: 4
Region: Rioja
Year: 1970

4 bottles of Olarra 1970 Gran Reserva (75 cl.)

Wine bought in Bodegas Olarra, in Logroño, in 2007.
Stored in private cellar up to today.

95/100 Cellartracker: "Exceptionally well aged. No off aromas. Smooth, rich, intense, balanced. Showcasing what old style Riojas can achieve".

94/100 Cellartracker: "Simply amazing. One of those moments that you love about wine. Bought this from the Rare Wine sale last year. Decanted for sediment only. Garnet color out to an orange rim. This nose was all dried fruits, meadow flowers and touch of leather. On the palate dried cherries, some blood orange with a silky texture. Nice acidity kept you wanting more. The importer label said 11-14% abv, my guess this was at the lower end of that scale. Never would have guessed this wine was 40+ years old. A real treat, need some more old Rioja in the cellar!".

94/100 Cellartracker: "Stunning old Rioja with awesome nose. Very vibrant & fresh fruit".

*** Shipment made with special wine box certified by UPS and DHL.

    Never replaced the corks.
    A cork from 1990 is unremoveble.
