The Details

In a Nutshell

Stylish white rioja from Rioja Baja.

Tasting Notes

An open and appealing nose with lemon and pineapple notes and floral hints. There is a voluptuous mouth-feel of tropical fruit, with some toasted and smoky characters. Well-balanced, with fine, natural acidity.

Grape Blend

Produced solely from Viura grapes grown in the Siete Caminos vineyard, on south-east facing slopes.

This wine is aged according to the typical white Rioja method: 4 months in American oak (mostly used) followed by 6 months in bottle prior to release.

Raquel, Ruben and Maria Pérez Cuevas are part of the 3rd generation of the Cuevas family to make wine in Rioja Baja.
