The quality of these wines was excellent. However, they were not known, they were not exported and felt into disuse .
We believe that it is the duty of the current CVNE managers to rescue these wines and make them known.
This is how Cune Blanco Reserva 2018 is reborn.
10,000 bottles produced
The Viura grapes come from 9 hectáreas of bush whites vines planted in 1973 at 400 meters in altitude on clay-rich soils in the village of Torremontalvo. The vineyard is protected from the frost by a small mountain, Barbarroja. South oriented and with a slight inclination.
In the cooler 2018, the grapes were picked in mid-October, a little later than normal, and the juice from the pressing of the full clusters fermented in a combination of concrete and oak vats and also some barriques. It matured in barrel for 18 months.
"The wine has a very spicy and smoky nose, with aromas of dried flowers and chamomile, rich and easy to drink, a fresher style than Tondonia, as here they look for something flattering with aging potential."
