Heredad de Tejada is a collection of wines made in the heart of Rioja Alta. Its winemaking process combines tradition and innovation, using modern facilities to create wines while following a natural process. For example, this wine is made in large vats, imitating the traditional winemaking method in "lagos abiertos", where whole grapes are deposited in open vats and the carbonic maceration takes place.
The harvest takes place during the entire month of october. Picking of the fruit is conducted in 15 kg. boxes, which are quickly transported to the winery; the clusters that do not meet optimum conditions are disregarded.
The wine is aged for 2 months in French oak barrels.
This is a straw yellow colour wine. Ripe fruit, dates and banana notes stand out on the nose in combination with the nuances of a Crianza, making it an interesting and complex wine. On the palate, it is fresh and fleshy, leaving a long, balanced and pleasant aftertaste.
ABV = 12.5%.
