Rioja Blanco (Otoman), Sierra Cantabria 2016 (1x75cl)

Founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren, Sierra Cantabria is nestled in the heart of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a town of great winemaking tradition, situated in a unique location between the River Ebro and the Sierra Cantabria mountain range. The Sierra Cantabria mountain range (1,200 m. of altitude) and the river Ebro (350 m.), create a special microclimate with Mediterranean and Continental characteristics - providing mild winters and gentle summers - unique for vine cultivation. On the other hand, the summer thermal jump (intense heat during the day with fresh night temperatures) creates an increase in the level of polyphenols, normally associated with excellent quality wines.

Grapes were 'cold-soaked' for 10 hours; the Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in French oak barrels (Vosges). The Viura and Malvasia were fermented in stainless steel. Fermented with autochthonous yeast selected from SC's own vineyards.

35% Viura, 16% Malvasia, 49% Sauvignon Blanc.

Otoman, referring to the silk trade in Turkey, is a fresh and expressive wine reflecting the identity of La Rioja’s Sonsierra region. Its crisp, silky and delicate with primary fresh citrus fruit, apricots and hints of vanilla.

ABV = 13.5%.
