2019 Blanco Segundo Año
75% Viura & 25% Tempranillo Blanco
The grapes come from a singular plot, located on a slight slope in a high-altitude area of Haro, with a deep limestone layer, stony alluvial soil, and a mantle of pebbles at the surface. Blanco Segundo Año refers to the time that the wine spends in the cellar before being released sometime during the second year following the harvest.
Elevage in French oak and concrete tank on the lees. These concrete tanks were constructed in 1924 and have been completely restored. The French oak is not roasted but bent with steam.
TASTING NOTES |
Classic and poised with a complex nose highlighted by notes of honeysuckle, stone fruit, and subtle oak. The palate is beautifully textured, with an almost exotic note, perfectly integrated oak, and ripe fruit. Complex with a long citrus finish.
