Montebuena Rioja Blanco
Cosecheros de Labastida ( Montebuena )
Spain - La Rioja - Rioja

Color: Straw yellow colored, translucent with greyish hues at the edges.
Nose: Prominence of fruit aromas of apple and ripe banana, with citrus notes in the background.
Palate: The first impression is freshness and intensity, although the acidity gradually smoothes out as the wine passes through the mouth and gives way to a mixture of sweetness with a slightly bitter note and silky feel that balances the first sensation.

Vinification
80% Viura, 20% Tempranillo Blanco. After de-stemming and crushing the grapes, they are cold macerated for 36 hours to extract the maximum fruit aromas possible. The must is then gravity bled and fined through natural decantation, also at low temperature, before undergoing alcoholic fermentation. This is done at 14ºC over 14 days, followed by a post-fermentation maceration on the lees. Finally, the wine is racked and decanted in sealed concrete deposits, whereupon it is ready for filtering and bottling.
