Abando Blanco Barrica 2016
A wine made with 100% Viura grapes from vineyards in Gimileo, late-harvested to obtain a slight over-ripeness. Viura is an indigenous grape from Rioja and one of the best for this specific winemaking. The good acidity obtained with this grapes avoids oxidation and gives to the wine a vibrant style. To make this wine, the resulting juice obtained after pressing is transferred to new American oak barrels (yes virgin barrels), where alcoholic fermentation takes place.
In nose is easy to feel its complex aromas tropical fruits, citrus fruits, botanical notes and mint, in balance with delicate vanilla and toast aromas resulting from fermentation in American oak.
In mouth it has a rich texture with excellent acidity, structure and flavour and a persistent tasty finish. This wine is perfect as an addition to any cellar as all of its qualities will improve with a period of bottle-ageing.
