Cosecha is bright and fruit-driven with aromas of strawberry cream and ripe, red plums open up to a palate that is velvet soft, with well integrated soft tannins and balanced acidity. On the palate, flavors of ripe cherries and summer raspberries finish with a touch of dark licorice, a notable characteristic we appreciate in all our wines.
VAZA is the result of a desire to emphasize the beautiful Tempranillo fruit of the Alavesa region in a vibrant and contemporary-styled Rioja wine. At our winery Solar Viejo, located in the village of Laguardia at the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria mountains, our winemaking team employs a modern philosophy of using a lighter touch of oak, allowing the unmasked fruit to be front and center with a nod to the traditional earthiness that is the hallmark of Rioja wine. The name VAZA originates from the Spanish word ”baza” meaning trump card, which speaks to the wine’s place in the Heredad Collection as a fusion of Spain’s winemaking vanguard and the region’s rich wine history.
|Ideal for a versatile table, accompanying appetizers and entrees alike, these bright wines are delicious with seared tuna or salmon, pasta dishes, grilled sausages, chicken and pork as well as many of the exuberant flavors found in ethnic cuisine.
