Castillo Clavijo Tempranillo Blanco

D.O.C.a Rioja

Grape Variety

100% Tempranillo Blanco.


Manual, in small cases during mid September.


A selection of younger vines with average age of 20 years located in Rioja (villages of Clavijo, Alberite, Villamediana and surroundings) and planted at higher altitudes in order to maximize the variety’s fresh, fruity nature. 


The free-un juice is fermented in stainless steel tanes at a controles temperature of 15°C and then kept on its fine lees for at least 4 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes

This grape variety (exclusive to Rioja) comes from a natural genetic mutation found in a single bunch of a Tempranillo red vine, discovered in 1988 in an old vineyard in the heart of Rioja. It has a fruity, intense profile, unfolding aroma of white flowers, notes of tropical fruits and some mineral touches. On the palate, this wine shows lively acidity, pairing well with fish and white meat, all kinds of tacos, ceviches, seafood risotto, soft cheeses, etc.
