    Good wine come to those who wait. And wait. And wait. Over ten years ago Spanish winemaker Alfonso Astasio started the process of making his Gran Reserva label. After two years in oak he gave it a staggering eight additional years in bottle before releasing it from the Anciano cellars.

    While we could waffle on and on about it (it’s ten years old, a lot can happen in that time) we’ll just lay out the facts so you can see for yourself…

    * Aged TEN years. Two years in oak, another eight years in bottle before release!
    * Produced from 30 year old Tempranillo vines
    * Imported by an NZ Master of Wine (Stephen Bennett MW)
    * 2007 vintage – received an official rating of “Muy Buena” (we checked, that’s Very Good!)
    * Fancy gold wire wrap packaging – a sure sign it looks like you splashed out way more!
    * It’s a snip under $20 – that is insane value in anyone’s books

    No need for cellaring this one – that bit’s clearly already been done perfectly for you! Grab a case, open it up and enjoy this medium to full bodied, smooth, mellow red that’s hitting its straps after plenty of time underground in those Spanish cellars.
