Valenciso Rioja Blanco 2018



This product is currently sold out

This fleshy, classy white is crafted from 100-plus-year-old vines of Viura (70%) and Garnacha Blanca (30%). It is sourced from four highland vineyards around Haro and Villalba. After a wild ferment, the wine is aged on lees in Russian, steam-bent, untoasted oak barrels--a fine-grained Caucasian wood that allows for a better balance between fruit and oak--for nine months. The result is a super pretty, aromatic wine with crushed citrus and savoury notes and a juicy, silky yet tangy, vibrant palate (racy yet with good texture thanks to the low yields from the ancient vines). The finish is salty, savoury and refreshing.
