At Compania Bodeguera de Valenciso. They only use them oak from the Caucasus for the barrel-fermented Valenciso blanco because it is believed that the fine-grained wood provides a better balance between fruit and oak. This beautiful white rioja is a blend of Viura with 30% Garnacha Blanca from old vines in the villages of Villalba, Haro and Ollauri, fermented with indigenous yeasts and kept for six months in 20% new barrels and 80% 2nd year. This Valenciso very elegant and balanced, true to the house style, clean, classic, and very good balance. Nice notes of citrus and a little fresh bread in the nose. In the nose the wine is fresh, lively with fine oak which combines very well with the fruity notes.

The wine is a good accompaniment to white meat, vegetables, cod and Asian cuisine.
