WHITE RIOJA, MAYBE OUR FIRST EVER!!!.... DAMN GOOD!!....85% Viura and 15% Malvasia

Winery Notes:
The demanding level that is set in Amaren requires that all the wines are produced in limited quantities. Vine plants are composed of small clusters which make perfect ripening possible with a high concentration of nuances. A wine with great aromatic intensity and elegance.

Color:
Straw-yellow in color.

Nose:
High aromatic intensity, blended nuances of syrup fruit and cake.

Palate:
In the mouth it is smooth and round, with a high complexity of citric flavors (lemon peel), hints of pineapple, pipe tobacco and aromatic plants with a mineral and extremely elegant finish.
