Artisan Family Winery

Herederos Rioja Crianza

There's good fruit flavour with a hint of vanilla. The wine is very smooth with great balance, as it is made naturally without any acid rectification or other trickery. Herederos farm biodynamically and use minimal oeeological products during the winemaking, producing a pure wine that tastes as wine should!

Herederos de Perfecto Martinez 1808 Crianza to give the wine it's full name!

The Martinez family began producing wines in the beautiful town of Laguardia back in the 16th century. Today they are still there making these handcrafted wines in tiny quantities. Their total production is just 40,000 bottles per year. They practice sustainable methods and always ferment the grapes with their own natural yeasts. They produce some delicious outstanding wines.

The grapes were all hand picked. The wine was aged in American oak for 12 months then bottle aged for a further 6 months before release.

The photo does not do this wine justice - it is in a broad shouldered heavyweight bottle (as you can see). Everything about it is high quality. These bottles are so elegant the daughter wouldn't let us throw the sample bottles away but wanted them herself for keeping olive oil in! You can't tell this from a 2D image on screen, but trust me they do look great. All the wines from Herederos are impressive and the fabulous presentation just adds an extra dimension, leaving you in no doubt they are real boutique wines.
