Tasting Notes

An open and appealing nose with lemon and pineapple notes and floral hints. There is a voluptuous mouth-feel of tropical fruit, with some toasted and smoky characters. Well-balanced, with fine, natural acidity.

Producer details

Raquel, Ruben and Maria Pérez Cuevas are part of the 3rd generation of the Cuevas family to make wine in Rioja Baja. Their father, Gabriel, inherited parcels of vineyards just outside the town of Quel on the higher slopes of the Sierra de Yerga mountain range. He was determined to produce wine that embodied the region, where he believed some of the highest quality wines from Rioja are made, and soon acquired more vineyard in the area.

In the vineyard

Produced solely from Viura grapes grown in the Siete Caminos vineyard, on south-east facing slopes.

In the winery

This wine is aged according to the typical white Rioja method: 4 months in American oak (mostly used) followed by 6 months in bottle prior to release.

Food Recommendations

Lobster or langoustines with a cream-based pasta sauce, or roast chicken dishes.
