The main feature of the year’s weather was a very varied winter in terms of temperature and rainfall, with very short spells when intense cold and lots of fog combined with hot, rainy days. The end of the vegetative growth cycle was marked by the night-time temperatures dropping significantly, which meant that the grapes ripened slowly. The resulting high diurnal variation produced good alcohol levels and much improved phenolic maturation. The harvest was orderly and staggered across the different sub-areas. It began in the first few days of September in the earlier areas, with the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes being picked first and the Graciano and Mazuelo last.
This Viura 2014 shows a bright yellow colour with green tones. On the nose intense and fresh with fruit aromas such as apple and mango standing out over a base of citrus which gives freshness. On the palate fresh, very fruity with great volume. Balanced with a long and persistent finish.
This young fresh wine should be served well chilled and is ideal with salads, fish and white meats.
