Finca Antigua Viura Sobre Lías 2017

Finca Antigua or “Old Estate” is named after the impressive old vines which provide the fruit for these excellent wines. The Finca Antigua Viura Sobre Lías is made from from 100% estate Viura grapes, grown at 2700 ft above sea level and sourced from a single plot named, “El Palomar”. This wine is fermented at low temperatures and with skin contact to preserve and enhance the brilliant fruit and floral aromas of the Viura variety. Five months ageing sur-lie (Sobre Lías) adds further to the body and complexity of the wine.

A wonderful lemon yellow in colour this wine offers intense aromas of apricot, peach, pear, fennel and those characteristic of white flowers (camomile, jasmine). Reminiscent of recently-cut hay and with light hints of smoke. The palate opens up with a silky, velvety mouthfeel that unfolds to a full body with backbone. The balanced acidity provides freshness and energy to a long and flavoursome, fruity finish.
