Tasting Notes:
Pale lemon colour. Clean, direct nose with ripe white fruit aromas (pear,melon, apple)and light citrus notes. Succulent on the palate with ripe fruit and unctuous texture  balanced by a pleasant bitter note on the finish. The early arrival of the 2017 harvest and its mature character translate into a more structured Viura than expected for a young wine; a good all-round wine to pair with medium flavoured dishes.

About the Winery:
The history of this unique winery begins in 1878, when a wine produced in a lost Rioja villagecalled Baños de Rioja won a prize in the wine competition at the Universal Exhibition of Paris. The red wine at issue was presented by Eugenia de Montijo, wife of Napoleon III, Empress of France and owner of a vineyard farm located in La Rioja.White Wine
