"The 2011 Rioja Blanco Fermentado en Barrica is a blend of 85% Viura and 15% Malvasia. Fermented and aged in oak for eight months, it is subtly fragrant with orchard fruit, flowers, ginger and oak. It is soft on the attack and well balanced with fresh and savory fruit flavors on the palate, good acidity, and a very nice finish. Bodegas Amarén is owned by Bodegas Luis Cañas."
