Description

For over 130 years López de Heredia has stood as one of Spain’s greatest wine estates. Occupying the same historic cellars on the outskirts of Haro, it is a beacon for traditionally made wines. Unlike most wineries in the region, López de Heredia owns all of its own vineyards and is still operated by the same family that founded it. The winery is today managed by Maria José, Mercedes and Julio César. In the cellar they use the same techniques that were established during the late 1800’s – the use of only natural yeasts, no filtration, and extended ageing in wine barrels built onsite. Some wines are aged up to eight years in barrel prior to extended ageing in bottles prior to release! López de Heredia occupies a unique niche in a wine world constantly reinventing itself. 

The Viña Cubillo crianza is a Tempranillo dominant blend (65%) that is complemented by percentages of Garnacho (25%), Mazuelo and Graciano. The grapes are harvested from the Viña Cubillas vineyard, which is located 4 kilometers away from the winery.
The youngest wine in López de Heredia’s stable, the Viña Cubillo crianza still offers plenty of the winery’s classic style. Garnet red in the glass, the nose expresses aromas of dried cherries, red plums, tobacco, dill, and clove. Medium bodied with silky tannins, the palate is a touch leathery with ample red fruit flavours.
