Critic's Notes

LUIS GUTIERREZ - THE WINE ADVOCATE, 94

“ … an homage to the traditional whites from Rioja ... an unusual nose of smoke, white pepper, lees and quince. It has pungent flavors, lively acidity and a clear saline and acidic touch that makes you salivate … really powerful and intense … I personally love this style ... matured in 500-liter oak barrels with the lees ...Unfortunately, they will only be able to reproduce this wine in certain vintages, and it will not exist in 2016 or 2017. Perhaps 2018?”

TIM ATKIN, MW, 95

“What a début this is! The first vintage of this Viura with 5% Garnacha Blanca immediately takes its place among Rioja's best white wines. Pithy, leesy and subtly flinty … with saffron, struck match and citrus notes and remarkable concentration. 2020-30.”
