We make very little white wine. We cultivate very old clay-limestone vineyards of exceptional quality in Rioja Alta, planted according to the customs of the time, in which there were always a small portion of white vines in the vineyard.

In addition to Viura – the predominant variety in Rioja whites – we also have Garnacha Blanca (White Grenache).

The wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels from the Caucasus.

It’s a distinctive white wine. The White Garnacha makes it richer in the mouth while the Caucasus oak is more subtle, accompanying rather than overpowering.

  • Varieties: Viura and White Garnacha.
  • Vinificiation: Fermented in oak barrels from the Caucasus
  • Ageing: 9 months in barrel
  • Serving temperature: 8 to 10oC

Delicate fruit tones which are reticent at first but which open up in a lively way bringing light dairy and spicy notes with wood making itself delicately noticeable. Long, full-bodied and elegant. It is well-structured with excellent acidity and solid firmness, but also rich and honeyed.
