Pujanza belongs to the modern Rioja style and also has the great advantage that the vineyards are located at high altitudes (the Pujanza Norte comes from one of the highest vineyards in the Rioja). This gives the wine the typical Rioja character, but with a lot of elegance and freshness. The Pujanza vineyards that are not separately bottled are blended in the Hado. The grapes in this Hado come from the top vineyards of Bodegas Pujanza . The Hado is not just a wine, but a wine that represents the house style of Bodegas Pujanza and the new trend of Rioja with wines focused on the fruit in which the wood should not dominate. In addition, owner Carlos wants a wine that is accessible in terms of price and he has more than succeeded with the Hado. The Hado is a medium bodied, clean and serious wine. The nose is nicely ripe but certainly not overripe. Beautiful notes of wood and spices which are very well integrated in both the nose and the palate. In the mouth it has fine tannins that also give the wine good storage potential. This is a very good and honest Rioja with a more than excellent price-quality ratio.

Carlos San Pedro is the owner of Bodegas Pujanza, who has an almost manic approach to producing wines of the highest level. Carlos' original idea was to produce a single vineyard with Pujanza from Laguardia, the capital of the Rioja. But gradually it became clear that the terroirs of the vineyards are unique and different so he changed his mind and decided to blend the uniqueness of the terroirs in the Hado. Carlos does not use external yeasts, and he consciously chooses to keep the amount of new wood low, but also to age the wines for longer in large (used) barriques. Bodegas Pujanza has approximately 30 hectares of vineyards, all of which are close to the beautiful Bodega. The vineyards are all between 600 (Cisma) and 720 meters (Norte) altitude.

The Hado was also tasted by Hubrecht Duijker (July 2016). See the tasting note below and it can also be found at: https://hubrechtduijker.com/actueel-maandmagazine/

"In the Rioja wine village of Laguardia, at the foot of the towering, sheltering Sierra de Cantabria, Carlos San Pedro (fourteen years ago) started his own domain, Viñedos Pujanza. This now covers 40 hectares, divided into four plots at altitudes between 600 and 720 meters. Carlos, fourth generation from a family of wine growers, only uses natural yeasts and does not want too much wood in his wines (few new barrels). Quality and fruit, that is what he strives for. Which is beautifully demonstrated by the Pujanza Hado 2012, a mouth-filling, juicy, softly fresh wine made exclusively from tempranillo, with spiciness, indeed controlled wood tones, quite a bit of berry fruit and a long aftertaste. This – literally – impressive wine"
