White Wine Viña Gravonia 2013
Availability: Out of stock
A varietal Viura (Macabeo), it is made from grapes sourced from a single vineyard. Vines are 45 years old on average.
The grapes were meticulously harvested, destemmed and fermented in big oak vats. After that, this white wine from La Rioja was aged in oak barrels for 4 years-with two yearly rackings.
Finally, Viña Gravonia 2013 was clarified with egg whites, bottled unfiltered and aged for a further 3 years in the cellar.
This Crianza white wine has a great ageing potential.
Pair with white meat, baked fish, creamy cheese or pasta.
The white wine Viña Gravonia is medium yellow with some amber tinges.
This varietal Viura is remarkably complex and elegant. Dry fruit, aromatic herbs, some lactic nuances and a panoply of spices, white flowers, honey, royal jelly and flowers.
Silky, textured and deep, this wine from Viña Tondonia has a fabulous palate. Bone fruit, juicy and fresh, underbrush, bitter herbs, citrus, jasmine... A nice complexity. Very good acidity and a long finish with some mineral and earthy suggestions.
