Product description

The Viura for this wine comes from two different vineyards in the San Vicente zone of Rioja Alta. Both vineyards combined have less than 2 hectares of Viura planted. Finca Iscorta has vines with an average age of 60 years. El Codo, the second vineyard, has vines with an average age of 30 years. The vineyards are worked in a very natural way. All pruning and harvest is done by hand. The Finca Iscorta Vineyard is all bush pruned and at an elevation of 500 meters. El Codo is a very steep vineyard and is trellised in cordon system. Grapes are destemmed but not crushed before being put in stainless steel tanks to macerate for 24 hours to gain structure and complexity. After being softly pressed, the juice undergoes spontaneous and slow fermentation with wild yeast. The wine ages in tank on the lees with rackings every 3 months for at least a year. The wine then ages in bottle, and depending on the vintage that aging could be 1 year or more. The wine is not fined or filtered. The winery focuses on red wines, but does have a small amount of white vines. This limited production white is superb with notes of apples and peaches on the nose and great intensity of fruit on the palate.
