Characteristics of Gómez Cruzado Honorable
Gómez Cruzado Honorable is a red wine produced by Bodegas Gómez Cruzado in Haro, D.O. Ca. Rioja.
Bodegas Gómez Cruzado was founded in 1886 in the popular town of Estación de Haro, where the most classical and renown wineries of La Rioja Alta can be found.
Their vineyard is divided into three areas of La Rioja Alta: Sierra Cantabria, Najerilla and Alto Najerilla. They comprise the traditional scenery of the area with small groups of vineyard called "majuelos".
Bodegas Gómez Cruzado controls more than 100 different plots, using sustainable and reasoned viticulture in all of them. Therefore, they can make great wines that reflect the terroir.
Gómez Cruzado Honorable is a wine made from Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura from the oldest vineyards located on the hills of Sierra Cantabria, planted on clayey-calcareous soils.
They are manually harvested and placed in 15-kg boxes, with grape selection in the winery. Once they arrive at the winery, they go through pre-fermentation maceration for 4 days. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel deposits, with temperature control, pump-overs and soft delestages. The malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels where the grapes remain for 18 months.
Gómez Cruzado Honorable is an intense, structured and fresh wine. Great balance between the varietal aromas, ripe black fruit and flowery notes, with the notes of the ageing. When the wine opens up, we can find the extremely elegant roasted aromas. The mixture of traditional grapes from La Rioja never fails.
La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
