Comments

Sierra Cantabria Organza is the result of the goal to produce the finest white wine possible from D.O.C. Rioja. The blend of the varietals is to produce as complete a wine as possible. Viura is used to impart body, Malvasía to impart acidity, and Garnacha Blanca for aromatics. The barrel fermentation and sur lie ageing creates a wine with structure that ages beautifully. Organza is a wine that is able to enjoy young but will show its true greatness after six to eight years.
