Ariyanas Romé Rosado (present and former vintages)

This rosé, made from the Romé variety, is perfect for those who don’t want to miss out on discovery and the exotic. very special rosé because of its aromatic character and sensational taste. Flowers, cherries, grapefruit, and crisp, with a touch of minerality. A tasty fullness in the mouth maintains this harmony and leads to a long, complete finish.

Very pretty floral-scented citrus-flavoured rosé with delicious hints of spice, creamy with minerally length, and an attractive bitter twist to the finish. With its wonderful natural acidity it is as fresh and  lively as any warm climate rosé. One of the best Spanish rosés I have tasted – and certainly the best from Andalusia.

I like rosés that speak quietly and develop subtlety in the bottle. Ariyanas Romé is one of these. Iron and maquis, heather and slate: austere and radical aromas are the first to speak, those of the earth and its favourite grape. With patience, dried roses and the fruit of the early morning, jazmines and violets with the new moon, wild strawberries and a distant memory of the salty blue sea. The night comes, whispering a treasure of freshness. These fragrances are also those of the whitewashed courtyard in spring, geraniums and orange trees in bloom.

Ariyanas Seco Sobre Lías Finas (present and former vintages)

Ariyanas Seco Sobre Lías Finas has been served on the tasting menus of El Celler de Can Roca since 2011. The restaurant has 3 Michelin stars and has twice gained the title of World’s Best Restaurant.

Definite stony/slaty aroma that’s comples, incorporating a grapey, floral note from the variety as well as ripe pear with that leesy character but also crisp citrus/grapefruit and the merest hint of orange blossom. Super fragrant but, thanks to the combination of mineral stoniness and lees creamy notes, very complex. On the palate it is that rich leesy character that gives power, length and weight, but it is backed by intense scent on the mid-palate. One of the best dry moscatels I have tasted and consistently so over the vinages. It should be extremely versatile with food.

Golden colour with quite and intense Muscatel nose. The palate is concentrated, packed full of manderins and honey but also showing an agreeable savoury twist. Despite the opulence, this wine is very driven and quite tight, so not at all cloying, nor OTT. Great wine, very well made: Clara’s attention to detail shines through.

Ariyanas Seco Sobre Lías Finas 2015 won the Sabor a Málaga 2016 competition as the best dry muscat wine of the province, assessed in a blind tasting.

Ariyanas Vino Tinto (present and former vintages)

Rose Petals and pepper might sound like an odd combination in the aroma but it works well in this deep-coloured, well-structured, voluptuously fruity red, softened with 6 months in French oak.

Ariyanas Naturalmente Dulce (present and former vintages)

Organic Moscatel de Alejandría. Sweet apricots doused in honey. The palate is sweet but not cloying thanks to a minerally streak of acidity. A deliciously unique wine.

Simon Reilly, Decanter 11.2019, art. The Great Disruptors

Moscatel from the hills above sunny Málaga. Old vines, refreshed by the altitude, the grapes partly sun-dried to give natural sweetness. Silky with bitter orange, caramel & lime conserve.

Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter Spanish Supplement, 11.2019

17/20. Mid-gold. Gloriously intense aroma of reduced apricots, bitter orange & sharp quince, and just a slight grapey note. Pure, complex and long with spice on the finish. Manages to retain freshness even though it is very sweet and rather viscous.

Julia Harding MW, on Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages, 06.2018

Star Buy. Made from handpicked Moscatel grapes that have been sun-dried. Fabulous melon & honey aromas with a hint of spice, floral undertones, gentle sweetness and dry finish. Such deicacy and freshness is rare in this style of wine. Serve with mandarine or orange sorbet or mango mousse.

The Spanish Wine-Writers and Journalists Association found Ariyanas Naturalmente Dulce to be the Best Sweet Wine of 2019.

Ariyanas Naturalmente Dulce 2018 won the Sabor a Málaga competition 2020 as the best sweet muscat wine of the province, assessed in a blind tasting.

Ariyanas Terruño Pizarroso (present and former vintages)

18/20. Mid-gold. Smoky, spicy apricots on the nose. Very sweet but with intense freshness on the palate of bitter orange, the oak adding texture and complexity without obvious oak flavour except that spicy quality. Mouth-watering yet luscious, viscous and mouth-filling with great length. Beautifully balanced with long ageing potential.

Ariyanas Terruño Pizarroso 2008 won the Sabor a Málaga competition 2013 as the best sweet muscat wine of the province, assessed in a blind tasting.

The best-rated wines of Málaga were the moscatels from slaty soils (pizarrosos). Complex, succulent.

Ariyanas David Tinto Dulce (present and former vintages)

I pick up ripe strawberries and chocolate on the nose. Some velvety black fruits on the palate already showing some development and reasonably sweet. An unusual but appealing soft fruity red, to pair with chocolate and cheeses.

Andrew Halliwell, Spanish Wine Snapshot , 02.2016

Dark garnet red. Opulant flavour of dark chocolate and candied cherries, mild spices and hints of vanilla. On the palate well-structured with distinct sweetness, elegant tannins and good length.

Markus del Monego MW Tasted 100%blind Journal, 01.2015

Dark ruby core and a tawny rim, sweet berries, plum, leather, with some earthy notes. The palate is sweet and rather full with fresh dark fruit, chocolate notes, fine spices, good length, freshness and balance.
