This is a very crisp and fresh Rioja. In a break with Riojan tradition it has been entirely vinified in stainless steel and thus has no oak influence.
The grapes are a combination of Viura (also known as Macabeo) and Tempranillo blanco which come from 40 year-old vines. All the grpaes are from estate-owned vineyards located in four towns in Rioja Alta: Cuzcurrita de Río Tirón, Tirgo, Villaseca and Sajazarra.
It has pale-yellow hues with touches of green. It is clean and bright. The intense nose is driven by the Tempranillo Blanco. The palette is packed with white fruit, green apples and stone fruit, with floral hints and citrus notes. It has a spectacular mouthfell , with good initial volume and an acidity that makes it enticing and moreish.
It is the ideal pour for summer salads or fish dishes.
