Conde De Los Andes Rioja Blanco

Conde De Los Andes Rioja Blanco

The oldest cellars in Rioja, Condes de los Andes has been painstakingly restored by the Murua family. In addition to kilometres of tunnels and over one hundred thousand bottles under cellar, Condes de los Andes has a purpose built boutique winery dedicated to small batch hand crafted wines. 

100% Viura. Sourced from some of the finest vineyards bordering Haro of Rioja in the Alta sub-zone. Many of the great estates border the vineyards all realising the benefit of slightly higher elevation to the resultant fruit purity and quality. Harvested by hand in the first week of October.  Barrel fermented with weekly stirring to add character and complexity. The wine spends 6 months in total in second use fine French oak before being bottled and stored in the underground cellar of the winery for a further 12 months prior to release.  

 2015 was a warm and dry vintage across Spain, although the higher altitudes, cooler climate and well established vineyards saw Rioja fair the best of all Spanish regions. Light rain and cooler weather in Autumn revitalised the vines before a trouble free harvest delivering outstanding, intensely flavoured fruit.

Review: 93 points Campbell Mattinson – The Winefront

Powerful white wine. Character written all over it. Honey and stonefruit, zesty lemon and then more savoury, twiggy, slatey aspects. It’s a hard wine to pin down in terms of absolute descriptors but it combines richness and spread to excellent effect
