Description

Nivarius Tempranillo Blanco 2022

Nivarius Tempranillo Blanco is zesty and crunchy yet exotic. Bright straw colour in the glass, from which wafts orange blossom florals, lemon zest and gooseberry aromas. Fresh, unctuous and perfectly ripe with a crunchy acidity on the palate. Strong core of lemon citrus with layers of fresh apple and pear, kiwi and a hint of minerality. 

100% Tempranillo Blanco from vineyards in Albelda de Iregua and Montes de Clavijo. The vines have an average age of 15 years and the vineyards sit at an elevation of over 700 metres. The soil composition is a mixture of ferrous clay with calcareous clay and a sandy component of degradation.

Harvesting the fruit at optimal aromatic maturation. Light pressing in the absence of oxygen to avoid oxidizing aromas. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperature to preserve aromas. Subsequent ageing on fine lees for 4 months in steel tanks and French oak barrels where the lees are stirred 3 times a week to give the wine more broadness on the palate.
