El Coto Blanco is a light, unoaked and refreshing white Rioja. The main grape is Viura, which brings a green fruit and citrus character to the wine. A small amount of Sauvignon Blanc adds acidity.
The green fruit notes are supported by the straw colour from the Viura grape. On the palate you have apples, citrus, tropical fruits and a little peach. It has a lively and fresh.
El Coto Blanco is made from Viura, Verdejo, and Sauvignon Blanc with Viura being the predominant
The Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc grapes are sourced from the high-altitude vineyards in Rioja Oriental which are situated over 840 metres above sea level. The Viura grapes were mainly sourced from Rioja Alta, from limestone and clay soils.
The grapes are chilled upon arrival at the winery and then pressed using a pneumatic press. The grapes are then fermented at 14-18ºC in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 12-20 days, to preserve aromas and retain freshness. No malolactic fermentation is allowed to take place and the wine is bottled without ageing to maximise freshness and crisp acidity.
As a young wine, this white Rioja is ready to drink immediately.
Seafood, fish, vegetables or as a refreshing aperitif.
