NIVARIUS EDICIÓN LIMITADA
Old vine Viura grown on the Moncalvillo slopes and Alto Najerilla blended with Maturana Blanca from Las Arcas vineyard in Nalda produce a powerful white wine that is
aged in large wooden casks.
The result is a structured, full-bodied and very expressive wine bursting with fruit notes that gains complexity after some time in the glass.

Mainly calcareous clay and a small percentage of ferrous clay and deep soils with a sandy component of degradation and sedimentation. This blend gives us structure, freshness and longevity in the wine.
70% Viura, 30% Maturana blanca.
Harvest with optimal phenolic maturation, light pressing without de-stemming and in the absence of oxygen so as not to oxidize aromas. Fermentation in French oak barrels at low temperature and subsequent ageing on fine lees for nine months in French oak barrels, where the lees are stirred three times a week to give the wine more broadness on the palate.
Nine months on its lees in French oak barrels.
"Seriously good high altitude white blend. Great to see these wines going from strength to strength"
