tim atkin logo 250"Juan Luis Cañas and his winemaking team produce this sensitively oaked cuvée from a combination of Viura and Malvasía, with the latter adding some perfume and weight to the freshness of the former. Apricot, tangerine and citrus flavours combine nicely with the oak spices. 2020-23"

2017 Luis Canas Rioja Blanco - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(aged for three months in new French oak barrels) Limpid yellow-gold. Dried pear, lemon pith, melon and vanilla aromas, along with suggestions of honeysuckle and toasted grain. Chewy and sharply focused on entry, then more broad and fleshy in the mid-palate, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit and orange zest flavors and a building suggestion of toasty lees. Delivers a suave blend of depth and energy and finishes long and tense, with a sexy floral quality lingering. This bottling delivers outstanding value. - Josh Raynolds"

2017 Luis Canas Rioja Blanco - 89 PTS - WA

wa89"The just-bottled, barrel-fermented 2017 Blanco Fermentado en Barrica is a blend of 85% Viura and 15% Malvasía Riojana. It matured in new oak barrels (75% French, the rest American) in contact with the lees and bâtonnage twice per week for three months. It's young, fresh and fruitdriven with little inuence from the barrel and with dominant aromas of apple. The palate shows some austerity, fresh fruit and clean flavors. 93,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2017."

2015 Luis Canas Rioja Blanco - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(raised in new French oak barrels for three-and-a-half months) Pale gold. Ripe pear, melon and yellow apple aromas are complemented by suggestions of pungent flowers and vanilla. Supple and seamless in the mouth, offering pliant, oak-spiced orchard and pit fruit flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Shows very good focus and thrust on the finish, which leaves behind notes of candied citrus fruits and honey. - Josh Raynolds"
