We are very pleased to announce the new partnership between Lopez de Heredia and David Bowler Wine as their distributor for New York and New Jersey beginning January 1st, 2011. Lopez de Heredia - one of the most venerable producers in Spain – produces traditional, age worthy red and white Rioja wines. Their wines are legendary and still made the way they were when the winery was founded over a hundred and thirty years ago. Following a tradition that has been passed down through generations, their wines are released at least five to ten years after harvest, which provides added complexity and elegance to their Crianzas and Gran Reservas. A rarity in Rioja, Lopez de Heredia uses only estate bottled fruit from their prized vineyards: Tondoñia, Bosconia, Cubillo and Zaconia. Average vine age is 45 years old and organic farming and natural fermentations are implemented creating wines that exhibit great terroir.
Tempranillo (65%), Garnacha (25%), the rest divided between Mazuelo and Graciano from the Cubillos Vineyard. Aged 3 years in barrel and 4-5 years in bottle.
Also available in 12/375ml.
