This wine is produced following the traditional method used in the Rioja region for white wines. After harvesting, the Viura bunches undergo static maceration without destocking for 18 hours in order to liberate aromas. The grapes are then left to settle at 5ºC and following this alcoholic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels. The wine is left on its lees and in total remains in barrel for 6 months. Following bottling in October 2013 the wine will remain in bottle for 6 more months before being released to the market.
