Vino Joven Tempranillo Blanco
85% Viura, 15% Tempranillo Blanco. Tempranillo Blanco is a minority indigenous white grape variety which is exclusive to the DOCa Rioja. It is the result of a natural mutation of Red Tempranillo found in a vineyard in Murillo de Rio Leza in 1988. With smaller clusters and berries than the red variety, it offers wines of intense fruity, floral aromas, with a great personality.
The Viura and Tempranillo blanco grapes for this wine were sourced from a select group of growers around Haro who have long-term exclusive contracts with the winery. The vineyards are on average 10-20 years old. The winery jointly manages the viticulture in these vineyards throughout the year to ensure maximum quality of fruit for these wines.

After a brief whole berry cold maceration, the first-run juice is fermented at a controlled temperature of between 12 ºC. – 15 ºC. to preserve the Viura and Tempranillo blanco grapes varietal character.
