Characteristics of El Pedal

El Pedal de Hermanos Hernáiz is a red wine produced by the winery Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz (Finca La Emperatriz) in Baños de Rioja, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz is the current name of the company that owns Finca La Emperatriz. The Hernáiz Brothers, owners of the farm since 1996, decide to change the name to host new wine projects in D.O.Ca. Rioja, taking advantage of the new classification that the council started to apply from the 2017 harvest.

The farm Finca La Emperatriz is located in Baños de Rioja, Rioja Alta. It has more than 100 hectares of vineyards located between the mountain ranges of Cantabria and Demanda, at almost 600 metres of altitude, on soils with a sandy-loam structure and a surface layer of boulders.

 

El Pedal de Hermanos Hernáiz is a wine made from Tempranillo, from vineyards owned by the Hernáiz family in different villages of Rioja Alta, with an average age of 30 years.

Harvest is performed by hand. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they ferment in stainless steel and cement deposits, with light pump-overs at a low temperature. They go through the malolactic fermentation and an ageing of 5 months in cement deposits, in a 5000-litre wooden vat, and in 500-litre used barrels. After these 5 months have passed, they perform the coupage with 10% of the wine from the previous harvest, which has remained in oak barrels for a year.

 

El Pedal de Hermanos Hernáiz is a fluid, blunt and fresh wine. It stands out for its fruity expressiveness with elegant notes of toasting and liquorice.

Tasting notes El Pedal

El Pedal 2018 is a juicy red wine with aromas of wild red fruit, notes of violet flowers and light toasted touches. On the palate it is fresh, light and direct. An easy to drink wine with a pleasant finish that is perfect for serving at a lower temperature than usual.
This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
