Straw yellow, it is subtle on the nose, with fine aniseed notes, chamomile, which give way to aromatic plants like lemon verbena as the wine opens. Vegetable notes of boxwood and nettles bring freshness to the whole. In the mouth it is complex. It has nerve and a lot of personality, with a point of salinity in the aftertaste. Aging on lees gives it volume, greasiness, and a very silky touch that wraps the mouth.

The 2021 Blanco Viñas Viejas is a blend of 90% Viura, 9% Malvasía Riojana and 1% Tempranillo Blanco, sourced from a 50-year-old vineyard in Rioja Alavesa. Fermented and aged for five months in oak barrels, this yellow-hued wine offers a nose that unfolds with notes of pear, peach, dried orange peel, fennel and jasmine. Creamy and moderately saline on the palate, the chalky texture adds another dimension to the refreshing core. It stands as a flavorful example of Rioja blanco.
