The Gómez Cruzado winery dates back to 1886 when Angel Gómez de Arteche started to produce and bottle his own wine in Haro, at the very heart of Rioja Alta. This was in the day when the wine trade between Rioja and France passed along the Tudela-Bilbao line, and the key Rioja wineries were located around the station of Haro. The winery sits just 100m from the station to this day. The winery sources fruit from almost a hundred different plots across 3 distinct regions: Alto Najerilla, Bajo Najerilla and Sierra Cantabria.
The Tempranillo grapes are sourced from vineyards planted in the foothills of the Cantabrian mountains, and from the lower course of the Najerilla river. The Garnacha vines are planted near the higher course of the Najerilla. Maturation is in American oak barriques.

Plum and bramble aromas with savoury, lightly spicy hints. An approachable, warm and gentle crianza with dark fruits and supple tannins - and more toasty, savoury hints developing on the long finish.
