Old-Vine Rioja White for Serious Value Hunters

Hacienda Lopez de Haro Rioja Blanco by Bodega Classica 2019

Tasted blind, you would never believe this wine comes in under 16 dollars a bottle. If you like white wines that deliver freshness and aromatics, Rioja, Spain is where you want to be. This old-vine white is on another level!

There’s simply no better white wine, at this price-point, in Ontario. Every time we pull a cork, we fall in love all over again.

It’s creamy, smooth and crisp and is what the tapas bars in Rioja would normally serve the locals, who really love their wine.

Lopez de Haro Blanco is a house white that is universally pleasing and will not break the bank. In our opinion, there’s simply no better white wine, at this price-point, in Ontario. Every time we pull a cork, we fall in love all over again.

What the Critics Say:

“Expressive, round and plump, rich and gentle, very pure and sophisticated. Long, peachy finish.” 90 points – Decanter World Wine Awards 2020

Lopez de Haro Blanco – Characteristics:

100% Viura from 50-80 year-old vines near San Vicente de la Sonsierra in Rioja Alta and aged for 3 months in French oak barrels. It spends just enough time in French oak to add complexity and depth. White fruit and flowers on the nose, following through on the palate with riper fruit, good stucture, freshness and complexity. Long, pleasant finish. This wine is a steal!

“Lovely. Although I am very partial to a Pinot Grigio this was certainly a delightful change. Lovely when it’s ice cold. Thoroughly enjoyed it.”

“This my house wine. Yes, it is. But unfortunately, I think that it is the house wine of a lot of other people, because from time to time it’s sold out! It pairs with so many things and is great on its own. Thanks to Wine Online for introducing me to this terrific wine.
