Tasting Notes

Lopez de Haro Blanco is a classic white Rioja, with aromas of pears, greengages and herbs together with a hint of honeyed oak. The flavours combine greengage, melon, pear with just a hint of vanilla and nutty notes: it finishes with a light citrus uplift. A well-balanced and attractive dry, lightly rounded, yet fresh white wine. It has three months ageing in French oak barrels.

Bodegas Hacienda Lopez de Haro in the Rioja Alta produce this attractive Lopez de Haro Blanco, which is made from old-vine Viura, the main white grape of Rioja. The Bodega is situated in the picturesque hillside of the historic village of San Vincente de la Sonsierra. The vineyards are located in Sonsierra which is sheltered by the Toloño mountain range with the River Ebro to the South. There is just enough wind to provide perfect aeration of the vines; with mild temperatures for most of the year and greater rainfall in the winter months.

Reviews

The 2021 vintage received a great review in Decanter Magazine’s Rioja Guide 2023:

“This full-flavoured white Rioja benefits from being made from old-vine Viura, which gives it a rich, textured, almost oily character that would be more typical of an older wine. Perfect for hake and other meaty fish – and incredibly good value for money.  90 Points.  Drink 2023 – 2025.”

This pays off in their consistent, quality wines at great prices.
