Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. Ample, forthright nose, highlighted by the typical varietal aromas of the Albariño (ripe apples and pears, stone fruit, particularly apricots) and a remarkable citrus background. Lively, fresh and structured in the mouth, with well-integrated acidity. Very persistent aftertaste, where hints of exotic fruit (lychees) make their appearance.
In the late 1980s, La Rioja Alta S.A. finally abandoned the production of white Rioja wines and began a painstaking search for a great white that would have a great personality and traits that would set it apart from other Spanish wines.
Seeking excellence, they settled upon Galicia, and went about the task of putting together the largest Albariño vineyard in Rías Baixas on the Atlantic coast. The vineyards are located in the most privileged locations of this exclusive wine region. The oldest plots —Seoane and Cervera— are located in Finca Viña Cervera, in O Rosal. The vines average 25 years and enjoy exceptional conditions, allowing La Rioja Alta S.A. to produce a wine with one of the best white grapes in the world.
