Production

Produced solely from Viura grapes grown in the Siete Caminos vineyard, on south-east facing slopes. This wine is aged according to the typical white Rioja method: 4 months in American oak followed by 6 months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting notes

Opulent aromas of pear and jasmine, with tropical notes and well-integrated oak. The palate is poised with pineapple, vanilla and crisp lemon acidity - and brioche notes on the finish.

Food match

Lobster or langoustines with cream-based pasta sauce, or roast chicken dishes.
