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.

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."
