CVNE, Barrel-Fermented Blanco 2015
From a highly regarded producer that has built a reputation for making traditionally styled Riojas. While it is barrel-fermented in American oak casks, the oak characters is smooth, subtle and well-integrated into the structure of the wine. Although it’s a traditional style, there is a modern feel to it thanks to the fresh lemony flavours backed up by a fine acidity. A great substitute for oaked Chardonnay.
