Lopez de Haro Garnacha has violet red hues in the glass. The scent of the wine is intense with lots of red fruit and Mediterranean forest notes. The taste is balanced with soft, sweet tannins and a powerful persistent aftertaste.
The grapes come from vineyards located in the heart of La Rioja, surrounded by the Sierra de Cantabria mountain and the Ebro River to the south. This area has an old tradition of winemaking. Lopez de Haro combines exceptional quality, the real character of the region and a love of wine. This wine is made from 100% Garnacha. A selection of old vineyards with very low yields settled on poor soils of the terraces of the Ebro in the area of San Vicente de la Sonsierra (La Rioja). Harvesting is done manually here in October. Followed by maceration for 2 weeks and controlled fermentation at 28oC. After this, the wines are aged for another 10 months in oak barrels.
Located in the historic village of San Vincente de la Sonsierra, Bodega López de Haro rises above a sea of vineyards, flanked by the Ebro and Sierra de Toloño rivers. The bodega has been completely excavated on the side of a mountain. The selection of wines is named after Don Diego López de Haro, founder of the city of Bilbao. Hacienda López de Haro is a series of wines that combine the simplicity and elegance of great classics with today's consumer taste. The terroir in this region is of calcareous clay. This produces a wine with refined freshness and a pleasant length and aftertaste.
