White Valenciso 2016 | Buy White Wine with Aging
Valenciso Blanco is a white wine from O.D. La Rioja made by the Valenciso winery. This wine is a blend of Viura (70%) and Garnacha Blanca (30%).
The grapes used come from vineyards, managed in a sustainable way, located in the towns of Villalba, Haro and Ollauri. These are very old vineyards that grow on clayey and calcareous soils. La Rioja Alta, the region in which the grape of this white Valenciso is grown, stands out for having an Atlantic climate dominated mostly by temperate temperatures.
The harvesting process is done manually, trying not to break the grains and keep them in the best possible conditions so that they do not lose their qualities. After being transported to the winery, the Valenciso Blanco grape is fermented in oak barrels from the Caucasus. In these same containers the wine rests for nine months before being bottled and marketed. Of Valenciso Blanco only about 9,000 units are produced per vintage.
