Details for Las Cenizas 2017
Bottle size and vintage
Las Cenizas is one of their more personal projects, it is named after Cenicero, the small town famous for its vineyards and top quality wines in the heart of Rioja Alta, where the Hernáiz family come from.
Las Cenizas is made with grapes from the family-owned plots of Puentarrón, Los Hundidos, Sanchisnal and Carril, in Cenicero. It is basically a Tempranillo wine with a small quantity of Carignan (sometimes called Mazuelo) grapes, aged for 16 months in American and French oak barrels (40% of which are new), before being bottled — with a production of 6,643 bottles to be precise.
The result is a wine with aromas of ripe black fruits and spices to the front, and hints of wood. Full and pleasing on the palate, with a flavoursome, round texture, Las Cenizas is pure seduction.

This is an estate of excellent quality whose potential had already been recognised at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1878 and which concealed a very important history. The estate originally belonged to Eugenia de Montijo...
