Cune / 2016 Barrel Fermented Rioja

COUNTRY/REGION: Spain/Rioja.

GRAPES: 100% Viura.

ABV: 13%

WINEMAKING: Soft pale yellow with green gold hints. Elegant, and attractive aromatic intensity. Aromas of pineapple, apple and banana are harmoniously blended with the notes of the oak. In the mouth it leaves a sweet aftertaste that invite us to continue drinking.

VINEYARDS: Selected vineyards in the premium Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa sub-regions.

VINTAGE: This year marked and unprecedented early completion of the harvest for the entire region of Rioja, but with a very positive balance in terms of quality. Thus, this vintage will be remembered at CVNE for being one of the earliest and shortest harvests to date, since we started picking at the end of August, approximately 20 days earlier than usual and completed harvest by mid-October.

WINEMAKING: A manual selection of grapes at their optimum point of ripeness. Once in the winery, the grapes were cold macerated for 6 - 8 hours to give more structure and flavour to the finished wine. The grapes are then lightly pressed and the juice transferred to new american oak casks for a fermentation that lasts between 15 and 20 days at cellar temperature: between 16 and 20° C. The young wine remains on its lees which are periodically stirred through the wine so that they hang in suspension. The wine is regularly tasted to assess its flavour evolution, until we decide on the optimum moment to rack it and bottle it.

TASTING NOTES: A reminder of how good white Rioja can be - 100% Viura with fresh citrus flavours and toasty richness.

DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.
