VARIETY

100 % Viura.

VINEYARD

Entradas de San Ángel.

AGEING SYSTEM

10 months in a 500 L French oak barrel and a 400 L amphora.

ELABORATION

Very limited production. 1051 bottles in this vintage. It is made in a very careful and special way. First white wine made entirely by Lucía.

Lucía wanted it to be a different elaboration, reminiscent of the traditional way of making wine in Rioja Alavesa, but also with an air of innovation. That is why we decided to try fermenting and aging the wine in barrels and amphorae.

Both the barrel and the amphora are porous and allow micro-oxygenation of the wine, which gives it more structure and makes the wine longer.

During aging, they provide finesse and volume and result in a greater expression of the grape variety of origin.
