Product guide note

The region of Rioja is best known for reds but some white wines are also produced from white grape varieties, in this case it is a white grape called Viura. “Fermentado en Barrica” on the front label means that the wine was made in big wooden oak barrels to give extra flavour. The result is a wine that has some toasty, oaky and nutty flavours along with fruity flavours of peaches and lemons.
