Hacienda Lopez de Haro Rioja Reserva 2012

SpainAt a mellow five years, this rioja is beginning to show its stuff. Still a touch youthful with juicy rich red fruit with spicy, clean, plummy flavours. The tannins are dense but light and the acidity keeps it fresh and helps to reveal a touch of minerality in the back end. A snappy mix of mostly tempranillo with bits of graciano, and garnacha. Drink now with lamb or pork or cellar for five years. Good value.Tasted: 14 September 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 22.99 private wine shops AB 17.95 private wine shops Producer: Bodega Classica (Vintae)Distributors: The Wine Syndicate
