Herederos Rioja Reserva
Herederos farm biodynamically and inform us that all their wines are low in sulphites (under 30 ppm free SO2 in all of them). Delicious fruit with noticeable vanilla from the oak. Not a big hitter, far more elegance rather than power. Great balance and very smooth, and not over dry on the finish as many Riojas can be.
