Finca La Emperatriz Viura

Finca La Emperatriz Viura 2016

Rioja, SpainThis is a blend of plots inside what is a single estate; there is no outside fruit used here. About a foot and a half of white pebbles over sandy loam seems the right fit for these 100 percent, 60-year-old viura vines. A short, cold maceration sets the stage for a cool ferment followed by two months on fine lees. Look for quiet/delicate white fruits with watery citrus, pear, floral notes. Bright, soft and ready to drink, and coming out of a strong vintage.Tasted: 11 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 estimated retail ON 18.50 WineWire Online Producer: Bodegas La EmperatrizDistributors: The Delf Group
