Sonsierra Fermentado en Barrica

INTENSE AND COMPLEX

VINEYARDS

Located in the Sonsierra region, at the heart of Rioja Alta.

VARIETIES

100% Viura 

ELABORATION

Pellicular maceration of the must with the skins for 24 hours, to ensure the maximum extraction of aromas. Cold debourbage for 24 hours. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16ºC. After two days of fermentation (at an approximate density of 1.060g/l) the must is transferred to new French barrels, where fermentation takes place. The wine stays in the barrel for about 3 months, with a daily bâtonnage.

TASTING NOTES

Straw-coloured yellow with lemony hues. Intense aroma of mature fruit with toasted oak notes. Wide in the mouth, buttery and crisp. Its very well assembled toasty notes stand out. Long and persistent.
