Vintage: 2017
Description: Technical notes Alcohol level: 12.5% Grape composition: 90% Tempranillo, 7% Garnacha, 3% Graciano. Producer The Heart Of Rioja San Vicente de la Sonsierra is in a privileged situation for winegrowing. A region located under the Tolono mountain range, which shelters it from the cold winds of the Cantabrian Sea and with the river Ebro to the south, providing the moisture needed. A Unique Climate This location creates an ideal microclimate for the vineyard. On the one hand, with just enough wind to facilitate the perfect aeration of the vines, and on the other, favoring mild temperatures throughout the year with more rainfall during the winter months. Century-old Tempranillos In this region the best old Tempranillo vineyards in Rioja Alta can be found. Cultivated using the goblet system on very poor soils, it greatly reduces their production and increases the quality of the bunches. Thousand-year-old History The fields of San Vicente are full of rock wine-presses and other prehistoric sites related to viticulture. And in this area wine was already being made more than two-thousand years ago. The history of Rioja wine in its pure state. Wine Enthusiast 90 points - #43 Top 100 Best Buys 2020 - Plum, cherry and earthy spice notes make up a classic Rioja nose, while this crianza from a hot, dry year feels fleshy and ripe. Dark berry flavors push toward the limits of raisiny, while this tastes and feels warm on the finish. (Aug 2020) Hacienda Lopez de Haro is a wine of intense colour and pleasant bouquet, in which the nuances of mature fruit stand out. In the mouth it is soft, expressive and elegant, combining a fruity character with the notes lent by the cask, in perfect balance.
