A new white top wine from Remirez de Ganuza that has been worked on for years and the 2010 is the first vintage available (only came on the market in November 2016, so more than 6 years after harvest). The wine is a blend of 70% Viura, 20% Malvasia and 10% white grenache from a very small and very old unique high altitude vineyard located on a fairly steep slope on the southwest. The terroir is very chalky which gives this wine a unique character. The wine has spent 24 months on new French oak and then more than 3 years of bottle aging before this wine has become available. Only around 800 bottles have been made and this wine is not your average white wine and also unique in its kind. The wine is fresh with a slightly oxidative character with bitter notes, mineral, white fruit. This is a great complex and elegant wine and a gastronomic delight. The wine is powerful but also elegant. The wine is definitely drunk, but we recommend opening the bottle some time in advance. If you want to put this wine away for years, then this is fine too. The 2010 is the first volume so we do not know exactly what the storage potential is, but according to Fernandez this is certainly 15 + years so up to 2030+
