Vinification Details: A highly protected harvest to keep all the grape aromatic precursors. Short maceration, in contact with the skins, followed by light pressing. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at temperatures kept in the range of 12 °C to 16 °C to maximise aromas. Contact with fine lees after fermentation adds complexity to the wine and the palate gains in texture and weight.

Tasting Notes: A very intense nose, with elegant notes of fruit and white flowers from the Viura, complemented with tropical aromas that Verdejo exhibits in Rioja, giving the wine much more intensity and complexity. On the palate, surprisingly intense fruit, excellent texture and very good acidity, coming largely from the white Tempranillo Blanco, making it both refreshing and delicious
Serving Suggestion: Pairs perfectly with lemon and herb chicken breast, seafood, goats cheese, creamy pasta, summer salads and tofu & veggie stir fry
