Hacienda López de Haro Blanco is a white wine from La Rioja produced by Bodega Classica. This wine is a varietal Viura.
The grapes come from old vines planted in poor soils on a hillside near San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in the region of La Rioja.
Harvesting is done after selecting the grapes from the vineyards with optimum quality. Hacienda López de Haro Blanco undergoes a controlled maceration with its skins for about four to six hours. It then fermented in French oak barrels for three months.
Bodega Classica is strategically designed. Situated atop a hill, the air conditioning is natural and most of the cellar is underground.
Deposits have big mouths to mimic traditional production in open lakes. Bodega Classica uses 5,000 barrels, mostly French oak.
Colour: Straw yellow colour wine.
Nose: Ripe fruit, dates and banana notes stand out on the nose in combination with the nuances of the barrel.
Palate: It is fresh and fleshy, leaving a long, balanced and pleasant aftertaste.
Food Matches: Roast Chicken, Scallops or Prawns
