SIERRA CANTABRIA ORGANZA RIOJA 2018
Sierra Cantabria Organza is a classic riojan blend white wine, containing the varieties viura, malvasía and grenache blanc. The grapes come from the wineries own vineyards situated in San Vincente de la Sonsierra, in the Rioja Alta. The vinyards are cultivated in an ecological manner which is respectful to the environment. Infact, the Sierra Cantabria does not use chemical products, only organic fertilizers every 2 years.
It’s easy to forget that the Eguren brothers make white wines, such is the quality of their reds, but no one should be in a hurry to overlook this cuvée of Viura with 25% Malvasía and 15% Garnacha Blanca, barrel-fermented in French oak and then aged on its lees for 11 months. Chalky, refreshing and textured with citrus and tangerine flavours and stonyminerality. A comparative bargain. Drink date: 2021-2025. Score – 95.
