THE VINEYARDS

TYPE OF VINEYARDS

The grapes for Las Cenizas come from three small plots of vineyard, all in Cenicero (La Rioja): Puentarrón, Los Hundidos and Sanchisnal. These three plots are all on the right bank of the River Ebro, with good exposure to the sun and soils which are a mixture of lime and clay as well as gravel. In this area, most of the vineyards are planted to Tempranillo, though there is a certain amount of Mazuelo and Viura grown there too.

CENICERO

It is one of the most iconic villages in the DOCa Rioja; historically its wines were among the most sought-after for their quality. However, the arrival of the cooperatives and large wineries led to the closure of the harvesters’ small “caves”, and the wines were diluted into blended wines.
The idea of elaborating a wine with grapes from those plots, which would recover the original spirit of Cenicero’s wines, was an old project of Eduardo and Víctor Hernáiz, which thus represents the closest link with their hometown: a wine recognized for its loyalty to the famous wines of Cenicero.

THE WINE

LAS CENIZAS

A wine with a very rounded texture, thanks to its ripe tannins and fruitiness. The aromas and flavours of the wine evoke the Cenicero terroir from which it comes. Devotion to the origin.

 

 

LAS CENIZAS

TEMPRANILLO

A luscious and voluptuous Tempranillo, with a predominance of well-ripened black fruits and silky tannins.
