The vineyards are in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, high altitude and around Elvillar de Alava at between 560 and 700 meters, protected to the North by the Sierra Cantabria and delimited to the South by the Ebro river. Limestone clay soils that contribute, together with a good humidity level and sufficient annual sunlight, to great wines.
60% Viura and 40% Malvasia. After crushing and de-stemming the grapes to free the must, they are placed in stainless steel tanks to undergo cold maceration for 24 hours. The grapes are then pressed to further separate the must from the skins, and transferred to new French and American oak barrels for slow fermentation over 25 days.
This wine spends approximately 80 days in new French and American oak barrels on the lees and is periodically stirred to intensify its aromas that, together with the support of the wood, give the wine a balanced complexity and elegance.
Colour: Very clean and bright. Pale colour with greenish reflections.
Nose: Intense, complex aromas that harmonize ripe fruit and the well integrated wood.
Palate: On the attack, it is smooth and fresh, with good acidity. It is ample and flavourful, leaving a pleasant aftertaste.
Food matches: Matches perfectly with any type of seafood, fish and grilled vegetables.
