Product Details

Bodegas Arzuaga Gran Arzuaga is a wine of iconic status that is made predominantly from Tempranillo with the addition of 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Albillo, a white grape that gives the wine texture, smoothness and an aromatic lift. The wine is only made in selective years when the quality is thought to be on another level and is made from low yielding, almost unproductive vines that produce grapes of extraordinary concentration. It is an unctuous wine with ripe blackberry fruit at its core surrounded by the most amazing herbaceous and floral notes that take you right back to the vineyard. Elegant spice on the finish and the most extraordinary aromatic complexity. Legendary wine, only 1900 made.

Bodegas Arzuaga was founded in the early 1990’s by Florentino Arzuaga when he purchased the La Planta estate, just east of Valladolid in the high-altitude region of Ribera del Duero. The estate itself consists of over 1400 hectares of land, of which, just over 200 are under vine. There is an abundance of olive trees and a bewildering array of wildlife, flora and fauna on the estate along with a superb modern hotel, spar and restaurant. It’s pretty much the perfect holiday location!

The high-altitude vineyards sit at 950 meters above sea level which results in a unique climate of hot days and cool, humid nights through the growing season. This allows for a slow maturation process which leads to ripe grapes with retained acidity, perfect for making big yet fresh and elegant wines.
