White wine kissed by oak is not for everyone, we know that. However, it depends on the intensity of the oak kiss, on the handling of the barrels and its toasting. For our white wine the oak is not used to flavor but to give structure and creaminess. We put the focus definitely on the fruit and the spiciness of the wine, its complexity and length on the palate.White wine kissed by oak is not for everyone, we know that.

White wine made from the varieties Viura (90%) and Malvasía (10%), sourced exclusively from old vineyards, located in the villages of Samaniego, Navarides and Leza, Rioja Alavesa. 

After a manual picking, all the grapes are hand-selected using vibration and selection tables. The must macerates with the grape skins some hours before its pressing. The fermentation and ageing (8 month) of the wine, in contact with its fine lees and regular bâtonnage, take place in new French oak barrels with especially light or without toasting.

 

Vineyards

Several plots located in the villages Samaniego, Navarides and Leza, Rioja Alavesa, with its typical calcareous clay soils. Average age of vines: >60 years. Average altitude: 550 meters. Vine training system: mainly Gobelet (bush vine system). Sustainable viticulture with 100% handcraft.

 

Tasting note

Attractive yellow golden colour. Elegant and complex nose, thanks to the period in oak barrels and the long contact with the fine lees. Exotic fruits, balsamic sensations with hints of minerals. Creamy and complex on the palate; elegant and very well balanced. Long and intense finish.
