This is a classic unaged white Rioja. The grapes are grown to provide below average yields and are hand-picked and cold macerated before pressing for maximum aroma.

Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks where the wine is given a little lees contact for a rounder feel before the two grape varieties are blended together, stabilised and bottled.

Tasting notes

90% Viura and 10% Malvasía

Not aged so as to preserve youthful freshness

Bright clean pale gold with slight green highlights

Fresh with notes of apple, apricot and traces of flowers and green herbs

Crisp and fruity, tangy, almost crunchy with orchard fruit flavours
