Characteristics of Heraclio Alfaro Crianza

Heraclio Alfaro Crianza is a red wine made from the Tempranillo, Grenache and Graciano varieties that the Heraclio Alfaro project produces within the DOCa. Rioja.

Terras Gauda, a winery known for fostering mainly the Albariño variety from Rías Baixas, is embarking on a new project with the aim of producing good wines. This is the case of Heraclio Alfaro, a red wine from the D.O. Ca. Rioja, which reflects the personality and character of red varieties in their natural habitat.

30 hectares of 40-year-old vines have been cultivated to produce the red wine Heraclio Alfaro Crianza: loamy soils and a Mediterranean climate with a continental influence that produce Tempranillo, Grenache and Graciano grapes that are evidence of the identity of the DOCa. Rioja.

Once the grapes have been selected, Heraclio Alfaro Crianza is macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks and is aged for 12 months in oak barrels. Before putting it on the market, it is then left to refine in the bottle.

Heraclio Alfaro Crianza is the name given to this red wine from the Terras Gauda winery in Rioja.

Tasting notes Heraclio Alfaro Crianza

Heraclio Alfaro Crianza 2016 is a pleasant red wine with lots of fruit and a touch of ageing. On the palate it is balanced, silky and lingering.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
