Wine description

Luis Cañas El Palacio suggests you go back to the origin of Rioja Alavesa wine. The diversity found in the vineyard is what you will find in the wine. The sum of the nuances provided by each corner of the plot: its three terraces, its different orientations, the unevenness of the erosion slope … are part of the complexity of this wine.

In the assembly, it is not the winemaker who dictates the proportion that each variety occupies. The percentages are determined from the vineyard, by the number of strains planted in 1969: 4,350 Tempranillo strains (75% of the varietal mix), 1,054 Graciano strains (20%) and 269 Viura strains (5%) .
