Now this is properly hand-crafted: three different grape varieties carefully selected after hand-harvesting from eight separate vineyards within the Fernandez Gomez family holdings situated around the town of Labastida, Rioja Alavesa.
Winemaker Carlos Fernandez Gomez ferments the selected grapes in stainless steel then matures in a mix of French and American oak barrels for 4 months, with a daily botonage on half of them. The result is a rich, complex white with aromas of vanilla, white flowers, honey and stone fruit, apricot, pineapple and smoky, nutty characters coming through on the decadent and lengthy palate.
Great with most seafood dishes and just amazing with traditional roast chicken (we’ve done it).
