All of the grapes used in this Spanish white wine from Rioja were destemmed and carefully selected.
After that, they were macerated for a few hours, gently pressed and clarified before being fermented.
As its name suggests, this white wine from La Rioja was then fermented in oak barrels. Both alcoholic fermentation and the subsequent ageing process took place in new French oak barrels. The process lasted 8 months, with regular stirrings of the lees.
