Viña Ardanza is always a lean, stripped-back Rioja, and frankly it has never been a personal favorite. The 2000 is typically tight and austere, with minty red-fruit aromas mixed with herbs and vanilla. The palate is sharp-edged, with bold acidity. Thus if it's a citric wine with light fruit and classic zest that you want, Ardanza will please. A Europvin, Christopher Cannan selection, imported by multiple importers, including Michael Skurnik Wines.
