Characteristics of Las Cenizas

Las Cenizas is a red wine produced by the winery Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz (Finca 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.

Las Cenizas is the first ‘vino de pueblo’ produced by the winery. It is made with Tempranillo and a small amount ofMazuelo from 4 of their own vineyards located in the municipality of Cenicero. The vineyards were planted in the 80s on mainly clay-calcareous soils.

The harvest is carried out manually. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are destemmed and partially crushed before fermenting in open stainless steel deposits, with soft pump overs for the ten days the fermentation lasts. After the fermentation, the wine rests for 16 months in 225-litre French oak barrels, 40% new and 60% used, where it also goes through the malolactic fermentation.

Las Cenizasis a mature, balanced and expressive wine. On the nose, the aromas of ripe black fruit with toasted notes of its ageing and light spices stand out. In the mouth, it is broad, with a certain volume and lively at the same time, showing all its fruity dimension and an amiable and fresh finish. A wine that captures all the character of the terroir of Cenicero.

Tasting notes Las Cenizas

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.
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.
