Aromas of tropical fruit burst from the glass, with grapefruit, papaya, and mango, along with more typical cool-climate notes of lemon, green apple, and grass. There's a slate-like note on the nose as well, adding complexity and depth.
Light-bodied and fresh on the palate, with flavours of pear, lemon peel, and ripe apple. The acidity is bright and approachable, giving energy and freshness to the finish.
Tropical fruit notes and a lighter body make this unoaked white pair perfectly with chicken, grilled mahi mahi or samosas.
Aromas and Flavours
Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.
As refreshing as aromas come, the smell of grapefruit is purely invigorating.
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
A musky aroma, sometimes described as 'a little offensive'. Recognize it from multivitamin juice?
Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?
Handling and Serving
2022 - 2024
Navarra might not be on your radar as a region for fantastic Spanish wines, but it should be! Long overlooked in favour of neighbouring Rioja, Navarra is beginning to attract long-deserved international attention for their balanced (and well-priced) wines. Terraplén's José Canto is a tireless advocate for the region's potential, especially with indigenous varieties that were historically given less attention than French grapes. We loved his wines so much that we are featuring both this Viura and his Garnacha. Viura (also known as Macabeo) is the principal grape used to make white Rioja, so it's no surprise that it grows equally well in neighbouring Navarra. Here, rather than oak-aged expressions common elsewhere, Viura is given the stainless-steel treatment to preserve its natural acidity and vibrant fruit flavours. Enjoy at about 8 C over the next two years.
