The philosophy at work at this estate is founded on the idea of balance: balance between embracing the modern tendency for fruit driven wines and maintaining the hallmark personality of Rioja. All the wines here walk that tight line to great effect.
The barrel-fermented Hazaña Blanco is a succulent and rich white Rioja with detectable notes of citrus, a tinge of mandarin fruit and a touch of oak which rounds the wine out.
The Crianza comes from the chalky, ferrous-clay soils of Rioja Alta. 100% Tempranillo aged in 12 months in new French and American oak barrels (and an extra 12 months in bottle) gives rise to a wine brimming with spice and vanilla, soft, ripe fruit and excellent structure.
The Reserva, on the other hand, undergoes 24 months in oak resulting in more aged aromas on the nose: tobacco and toast overlay berry fruit flavours. It ends with a long, satisfying finish.
