Description:
Bright straw yellow, star bright. Ripe summer fruit on the nose with floral notes. Soft, aromatic and rich on the palate, with good grapefruit acidity. Light toasty and biscuity flavours from the oak and the lees, with hints of cinnamon over grapefruit on the finish. Beautifully balanced.

This rich dry white has been fermented in oak to give it a kiss of toasty richness that is balanced by crisp, fresh, citrus characters.

A manual selection of grapes at their optimum point of ripeness. Once in the winery, the grapes are cold macerated for 6-8 hours to give more structure and flavour to the finished wine. The grapes are then lightly pressed and the juice transferred to new american oak casks for fermentation between 16 - 20°C. The young wine remains on its lees which are periodically stirred through the wine so that they remain in suspension. The wine is regularly tasted to assess its flavour evolution until the winemaker decides upon the optimum moment to rack and bottle it.

Producer Information

C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espana (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asa, their aim was to capitalise on the flourishing new trade in wine.
C.V.N.E. is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region. Historically, some of the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves here in order to benefit from the ease of transport via rail to the port of Bilbao, the most efficient form of transport in those days.
By 1900, the winery had an extraordinary ageing capacity of 80,000 bottles, which was most unusual at the time, as most wineries sold their wines as soon as possible.
C.V.N.E. is still controlled by the direct descendants of the founding family. Now in its fifth generation, the company has been quoted on the Madrid stock exchange since 1997.
C.V.N.E. farms half of its grape crush. The remainder is purchased from long term growers. With three wineries in the region; Cune, Via Real and Contino the winemakers have control over quality from vineyard to bottle.
