After brief maceration in the press, the free-run must is selected, the first must which comes out of the press by gravity. This is then fermented at a low temperature in small oak vats. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is left on its fine lees for 3 months in an Oeuf de Beaune (concrete wine egg) to preserve the aromas and give body on the palate.
6 months in new French oak casks (Nevers and the Normandy town of Les Loges) with a light toast. After that it will undergo a process of refinement and rounding in the bottle for a further 18 months.
A classic Rioja white wine vinified with three of the region's most important indigenous white varieties. Viura provides weight, structure, and ageing potential. Garnacha Blanca imparts texture, alcohol, and acidity. Maturana adds aroma.
