EXCELLENT VINTAGE. In that year it rained very little in comparison to a normal average year. June was very cold and as a consequence the budding was affected, reducing the quantity all over Rioja in general and in their vineyards in particular. The weather conditions during the harvest were perfect and they could harvest grapes in excellent conditions of quality that have developed in exceptional wines with a great capability of ageing and very characteristic of a great cold Rioja vintage..
Clear, bright ruby. Fresh and slight aroma of licorice with consistent texture and persistent aroma. Smooth, fresh and long finish.
Lopez de Heredia is always a must buy!
