The white wine of Pujanza is called the Añadas Frías. This tyrant is only made in top years and is only made in a cool year, which gives the wine Burgundian features. The wine comes from grapes from a vineyard of only 1.5 hectares in San Juan de Anterportalatina - Laguardia, DOCa. Rioja. This unique vineyard is located at an altitude of 600 meters on a limestone soil.

The Añadas Frías is made for 100% from the Viura grape. The wine has matured in 225 liter new oak barrels on its own lees (sur lie) in a temperature controlled environment. As a result, the wine matures very slowly, develops great storage potential and gives extra complexity. All this leads to a Burgundian type of wine of the very best kind. We are certainly not going to say that this is an inexpensive wine, but it can easily compete with the white Burgundians or Rhône wines that cost a multiple. The wine is very refined with a complexity of scents in which citrus and minerality emerge at first, but little by little it reveals its secrets and we smell white flowers and even a little peach. In the mouth, the freshness is striking and here too the minerality comes forward and the wood is very nicely interwoven. The aftertaste is great and long lasting. This is absolute top and it is a pity that less than 1000 bottles have been made and that it is only made every 3-4 years on average.

The wine has been chosen by Decanter as the best white wine in Spain (98/100). They start their assessment with: "... A Jewel, Unique...." In the tab: Attachment you will find the factsheet of the wine and the assessment of Decanter
