Castillo Clavijo Blanco
90% Viura, 10% Tempranillo Blanco.
Manual, in small cases during beginning of September.
A selection of younger vines with an average age of 20 years located in the heart of Rija (villages of Clavijo, Alberta, Villamediana and surroundings) and planted at higher altitudes in order to maximize the variety’s fresh, fruity nature.
Clusters are macerated at low temperature in stainless steel tanks and the resulting free-run juice is fermented at a controlled temperature of 14C and then kept on its lees for at least 4 months before bottling.
Outstanding dry, fruity, crisp white wine showing stunning aromas of apple, lime peel and lemon verbena, with some bitter flavors of grass and hazelnut on the finish. A great aperitif and very versatile wine pairing with all sorts of white meats, seafood and Asian food (sushi, coconut curries, etc.).
