Availability: In stock
The white wine Gómez Cruzado Blanco is made from a blend of the traditional DOCa Rioja varieties.
As usual, Viura takes the main part, complemented with 25% Tempranillo Blanco and 5% White Grenache and Malvasía. The grapes are sourced from bushvines planted on limestone soils situated near Haro, and from vineyards with clay-iron soils situated in Alto Najerilla.
The grapes were hand-picked and selected on entering the cellar. Half-destemmed, they were gently pressed with a pneumatic press and then fermented in stainless steel tansk under controlled temperature.
After that, the white wine Gómez Cruzado Blanco 2022 was aged for 5 months on lees, some in French oak barrels and the rest in concrete diposits.
Pair this white wine from La Rioja with a nice cheese planter, oily fish recipes and white meat dishes.

The whtie wine Gómez Cruzado Blanco is pale yellow with some greenish reflections.
This blend of Viura, Tempranillo Blanco, White Grenache and Malvasía carries aromas of sweet pear and ripe peach, with a hint of vanilla and some yeasty and smokey notes.
Fruit and oak are nicely integrated in this wine of the Gómez Cruzado winery, with a gently creamy body, ripe white fruit, some citrusy and smokey sensations and a nice acidity to carry the wine. Transparent and very expressive.
