Hacienda Lopez de Haro, Rioja Crianza
Deep red cherry colour with terracotta tones with aromas of ripe red fruit and liquorish combined with coffee, vanilla, and balsamic nuances from the barrel ageing (French and American oak barrels for 16 months). The palate is smooth and velvety with sweet and ripe tanning that make it a pleasant and easy-drinking wine with a long aftertaste.
Ideal with strong tapas, paella, red meat stews and mature cheeses.
Hacienda López de Haro Winery is located at the top of a hill in the historic town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. San Vicente de la Sonsierra is in a privileged situation for winegrowing as it is a region located under the Toloño 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. 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, favouring mild temperatures throughout the year with more rainfall during the winter months. It is a place that combines the excellent conditions of the grapes with the essence of the Rioja wine tradition to create a wide range of elegant wines with their own personality. Wines like those from the Hacienda López de Haro collection, made following traditional methods to convey the fusion between traditional and modern. The estate has a network of small-scale trusted wine growers with whom the team has been working for many years. The quality of their vineyards, the love of the land and the feeling of belonging to a common project, have made them an essential part of the winery.
