Pujanza belongs to the modern style of Rioja and also has the great advantage that the vineyards are located at a high altitude (the Pujanza Norte comes from one of the highest vineyards in the Rioja). This gives the wine the typical Rioja character, but with a lot of elegance and freshness.

The white Pujanza wines are among the top among the white Riojas. The white wine from Pujanza is called Añadas Frías. This great wine is only made in top years and is only made in a cool year, which gives the wine Burgundian characteristics. 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. In a cool year they release the Anada Frias and in a warmer year the white wine is the Anterportalatina

The Añadas Frías is 100% made 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. The wine therefore ripens very slowly, develops great storage potential and adds 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 affordable wine, but it can easily compete with the white Burgundian or Rhône wines that cost many times that amount. The wine is very refined with a complexity of scents in which the citrus and minerality initially emerge, but little by little it reveals its secrets and we smell white flowers and even a little peach. The freshness is striking in the mouth and here too the minerality comes to the fore and the wood is very beautifully interwoven. The aftertaste is great and long lasting. This is absolute top and a pity that less than 1000 bottles have been made and on average it is only made once every 3-4 years.

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 fact sheet of the wine and the assessment of Decanter
