Reviews and Ratings

Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A Rioja white made from Viura and Malvasia grape varietals. Vibrant citrus, stone fruit and mineral aromas. The flavours are citrus and a hint of sweet orange blossom followed by bitter nut and orange pith on the finish. A unique wine that can be paired with a variety of appetizers such as roasted nuts, raw oysters, and strong soft cheeses.
Luis Cañas Fermentado En Barrica Blanco (2015) is a white wine blend of 85% Viura and 15% Malvasia Riojana. The wine was matured in oak barrel and allowed to rest on its lees for four months giving the wine structure, mouthfeel complemented by laser acidity. A very fresh wine to be enjoyed with seafood. - Community Wine Reviews
