Albatross 2015 Vintage Special Edition Reserva Red Rioja
This sea bird, “Albatros”, is used to describe the rarest golf score ever seen, the pinnacle of golfing difficulty. As opposed to the terms “Birdie” and “Eagle” it originated in Britain and dates back to when steel-shafted clubs were brought in by Bobby Jones. It was these clubs that made an “Albatros” possible, unthinkable until then. Master of wine Tim Atkin rating 93.
TASTING NOTES Intense cherry red colour with deep red glimmers. This wine has not been filtered to keep all its potential. Its aromas include fully ripening fruit with typical grape harvest fragrances, notes of toasting and spices from the new barrel. It is long and slick in the mouth, dense and structured with smooth, mature tannins that give a feeling of plenitude and complexity.
