Pure and precise aromas of cherries and red berries are layered with herbal notes of thyme through to a textured palate. This wine shows excellent balance between fresh natural acidity, fruit concentration and firm, but fine-grained tannins.
‘Laderas’ means hillside, and this wine takes its name from the hillside vineyards on which the grapes are grown.
The fruit is carefully selected from over 300 parcels that are situated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria, in Rioja Alavesa. The average plot size is just 0.3 hectares and the average age of the vineyard is approximately 50 years, but some of the vines are significantly older, producing low yields of concentrated juice.
The grapes for this wine are hand-harvested and then carefully sorted to select the highest quality fruit before they are traditionally fermented with selected yeasts.
One third of the wine was aged in 225 litre and 300 litre French and American oak barrels of second and third use, for five months. The oak ageing imparts texture and length to the palate, without giving the wine an overt oak character. The balance was aged in stainless steel tanks on the fine lees, resulting in a wine which reflects the terroir of Rioja Alavesa
