Artisan Family Winery

Herederos Rioja Selecion D'Autor

Herederos 1808 Selecion D'Autor is the top wine from this excellent family winery. More gentle and sophiticated rather than powerful. Only 6 months in oak but then 20 months in bottle so not the heavier vanilla style of Rioja. More purity of fruit with elegance and structure.
