Viña Real Barrel Fermented Rioja Blanco 2020

Viña Real Barrel Fermented Rioja Blanco is made from hand-picked Viura grapes. The vines are now 20 years old and are grown in various plots around Rioja Alavesa, mainly from Elciego and Laguardia. Once in the winery, they were held for 12 hours on their skins in order to extract more aromatic compounds and obtain better aromatic profile in the finished wine. Afterwards, a small pneumatic press was used to separate different fractions and qualities of must. The free-run juice is used for making this wine, which is fermented Hungarian oak barrels of differing capacities and ages (between 1 and 3 years old). Once the alcoholic fermentation ended, the wine remained in barrel with its fine lees which were kept in suspension through battonage. Weekly tasting of the wine allowed enabled the team to keep track of its development and decide the best time to end lees contact. At this point, the wine was racked, clarified and filtered before bottling. Bright and clear pale yellow in color. On the nose it presents a good balance between the aromas coming from the variety and those coming from its stay in the barrel such as floral, fruity aromas of apple, pear and ripe banana together with pastry spices and light notes of aromatic herbs. On the palate the fresh fruit is to the fore with balanced silkiness on the mid-palate and a long, fresh finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

To be fair, just the first bottle of a few, but was dull and lifeless with suppressed flavour. Hoping the others prove me wrong as the crianza red is a joy.
