Lopez de Heredia are in the Samplers top ten of favourite wine makers . They are the most traditional of all the Rioja bodegas. This is their crianza level wine which is ready to drink sooner than the other Lopez de Heredia wines. A blend of 65% tempranillo, 25% Grenache and a bit of Mazuelo and Graciano, the style is of bright fruit, and a traditional dusty finish.
Lots of red berry fruit , meaty flavours, and wonderful smoky herbs on the nose. The palate is soft and lush bursting with cherry flavours, and a savoury meatiness which is reminiscent of, and cries out for a plate of Spanish ham!
Grape: Tempranillo dominated blend
