Cune Rioja Blanco is a bright pale yellow in colour with a very clean and complex nose with aromas of pear and apple intertwined with toasted nuts. On the palate, it is initially soft, becoming full and finishing elegant, long and interesting.
The first wine produced by CVNE took the name of the company’s initials. However, a simple and fortunate spelling error, confusing the V with a U, led to the creation of the iconic Cune brand, now a leading name in the wine world. The winery expanded its facilities in 2019, coinciding with its 140th anniversary and marking its continued commitment to producing the finest quality white, rosé and gran reserva wines.
To achieve this unique wine, the grapes are lightly pressed and the juice transferred to new American oak casks for a fermentation that lasts between 15 and 20 days at cellar temperature. The young wine remains on its lees which are periodically stirred through the wine so that they hang in suspension. The wine is regularly tasted to assess its flavour evolution until the optimum moment when it is bottled.
This fuller white wine works with a host of dishes including lightly curried chicken, carbonara and meaty fish dishes, such as salmon, monkfish and halibut.
