GRAPES: 70% Viura, 15% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha.
Attractive salmon pink in colour with a rose pink rim. This is an aromatic wine, the nose revealing floral aromas along with peach, apricot and background notes of strawberry and citrus. Delicious, balanced palate, rounded with a lightly acidic aftertaste and a long, fruit-driven finish. An elegant wine which can be enjoyed at any time, with food or without.
VINEYARDS: Carefully selected vineyards in the Alavesa sub-region of Rioja.
WINEMAKING: Grapes were harvested at peak ripeness. The three varieties, garnacha, tempranillo and viura were placed in the vat and allowed several hours of cold maceration. Following this, the vat was gravity drained, without mechanical pressing, to produce a juice which was then fermented at a controlled temperature of 16¼C for 20-25 days. In this way, the all important primary aromas are maintained. The resulting wine was kept for a time at the winery before being released to the market.
