Bodegas Benito Urbina Gran Reserva 1996 - March 2017 Decanter review

 

Bodegas Urbina is a winery which has been in the Urbina family for four generations since 1870. The present winery was designed, built and run by the family in 1986 and was created to facilitate producing fine wines.  Urbina has 75 hectares of vineyards located at two main vineyard sites - the first is at Cuzcurrita de Rio Turon, a well-known area for producing Riojas capable of ageing for many years and the others are at Uruñuela, in the heart of the Rioja DOC, which consistently produces wines of great quality and body. The grapes used are from vines aged over 20 years old. The vines are grown in accordance with traditional practices, no herbicides and limited use of pesticides and fungicides. 

 

The Urbina Gran Reserva is harvested by hand and the skins remain in contact with the must for 28 days.  It is then fermented at a temperature of 28°C using indigenous yeast.  The wine is matured for 24 months in American oak before being bottled and matured for another 48 months before being released for sale.

 

The Urbina Gran Reserva 1996 has a splendid ripe, complex nose, is reddish-garnet in colour with harmonious and well-balanced oak and fruit tannins.  It also displays intense rich fruit, great finesse and velvet smoothness on the palate.  It goes perfectly with slow roasted lamb shoulder or with game - particularly duck and pheasant.

The Gran Reserva has a brilliant ruby-red colour with tinges of brick red.

This is a complex wine with exceptional concentration and a long finish.
