The wine

Las Cenizas is one of their more personal projects, it is named after Cenicero, the small town famous for its vineyards and top quality wines in the heart of Rioja Alta, where the Hernáiz family come from.

What does this wine taste like?

Las Cenizas is a wine with aromas of ripe black fruits and spices to the front, and hints of wood. Full and pleasing on the palate, with a flavoursome, round texture, Las Cenizas is pure seduction.

The winery

Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz

Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz

Finca La Emperatriz is one of the very few Rioja wineries to produce their wines from one single vine-growing plantation, which is customary in Bordeaux's Médoc region (other Rioja wineries employing the same model are Remelluri, Valpiedra and Contino). This is an estate of excellent quality whose potential had already been recognised at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1878 and which concealed a very important history.
