HACIENDA LOPEZ DE HARO RIOJA CRIANZA BY BODEGA CLASSICA 2017
Since we started to carry their wines nearly a decade ago, Lopez de Haro’s Rioja Crianza fast became a staple at WineOnline. This versatile, classical Rioja Crianza will pair fantastically with countless dishes. From charcuterie to chicken wings to roast lamb and meats off the grill, this is one of those go-to reds to have around the house.
I lived in Spain for 15 years and have been fortunate enough to travel extensively throughout Europe’s great wine countries. I can be pretty picky about the wines I like to drink, but when it comes to Rioja, the Lopez de Haro Crianza has never disappointed. I love it, and pretty much everyone that tries it loves it too—truly one of the jewels in our portfolio that perfectly captures the essence of the region, and for this price, it’s a total victory. A value hall-of-famer and client favourite each and every time a new vintage is released.

TASTING NOTE / “The 2017 Lopez de Haro Crianza has a mellow bouquet of dried herbs, terracotta tiles and red and black fruit that is very well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin: tart red berried fruit, laced with tobacco and dried herbs on the rounded finish.”

“Pleasure at the right price. This wine is smooth, a bit mellow and had a good finish for the price. A pleasant aroma and pairs very well with tapas or BBQ.”
Sandra D. – Verified Buyer
“Wonderful, smooth drinkable red. This wine from Spain has become my favourite “house red”. On occasion I’m the only red drinker and, properly sealed, this bottle holds up very nicely the day after opening. Delicious and consistently good quality.”
