Aster Finca el Otero, a single-vineyard Ribera produced by La Rioja Alta S.A., scored 96 points in Tim Atkin's report, placing it among the top 30 wines from this region – an incredible achievement. Most of these top 30 are actually not available in the UK. In comparison to those that are available, Finca el Otero shows incredible value in an expensive region. Most noticeably, Finca el Otero 2016 was scored the same as Flor de Pingus 2018, but at around half the price!
“Finca El otero is the top wine from the La Rioja Alta-owned Aster. Made with grapes grown on clay and limestone soils in Anguix, it reflects the vivacity of an Atlantic year, with stylishly integrated new French oak, good structure and depth, mocha, plum, and blackberry fruit and a surprising freshness.” 96 Points, Tim Atkin MW.
