Classic oaked white Rioja: a blend of Viura with 5% Malvasia. Pungent and savoury nose of candied peel, preserved lemon and herbs. A fresh seam of juicy acidity underpins the savoury, leesy palate with notes of spice. Elegant oxidative development and lovely balance here – this will continue to improve with time in bottle.
