The color of Rioja Blanco is light straw yellow. In the scent it has ripe fruit, dates and banana notes that stand out in combination with the nuances of oak. On the palate, the wine is fresh and fleshy, with a long, balanced and pleasant aftertaste.
Rioja Blanco is made from Viura and some other local grape varieties, from old vineyards located on poor soil in the area of San Vicente de la Sonsierra (La Rioja). The grapes are picked by hand throughout the month of October. From receipt of the grapes in the cellar, people work with gravity. That means no pumps are used, which is better for the grapes and ultimately the wine. The wine is aged for 3 months in French 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 rivers Ebro and Sierra de Toloño. The bodega is 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.
