Tasting Notes

WINE INFORMATION

Hazaña is a custom cuvée made in partnership between Eric Solomon and Rafael de Haan. British born and educated, Rafael joined the UK wine trade in 2000 and early on realized that he rather have a career closer to the vine. In 2001 he moved to Barcelona, brokered some wine and opened a tapas bar before setting up his first property, Bodegas Abanico, in Rioja with his partner Nuria Altes.

Named for the ancient, poetic tales of heroism, Hazaña is made in the classical style of Rioja. The fruit comes entirely from the vicinity of Logroño at 700 meters above sea level and on red clay and chalky limestone soils. A blend of Tempranillo with up to 15% Graciano, it is aged for 10 months in French and American oak before release.

The grapes are hand-harvested and grown with organic farming practices on clay soils (limestone and red clay).

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of red fruit, dried herbs and a hint of mint. On the palate this medium-bodied wine shows flavors of ripe red cherry, plum, currants, leather and savory toast. This wine is complex with medium tannins, refreshing acidity and a juicy finish.
