This fleshy, classy white is crafted from 100-plus-year-old vines of Viura (70%) and Garnacha Blanca (30%). It is sourced from four ancient and low-yielding highland vineyards around Rodezno, Haro and Villalba. After a wild ferment, the wine was aged on lees in Russian, steam-bent, untoasted oak barrels (a fine-grained Caucasian wood that allows for excellent balance between fruit and oak) for nine months.
A surprisingly long, creamy white. The freshness of the viura variety with the powerful touch of the white Grenache plus its fermentation in the barrel achieves an incredible aromatic freshness, harmony and unique balance. One of the best in Rioja.
