Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This vintage is vibrant and delicious with plenty of floral and honeyed stone fruits accents on a mid-weight body and nice acidity at the end. Exercising their creativity, the winemakers applied barrel fermentation and sur lie maturation techniques to this wine and the results were splendid.

If you have never tasted a wine featuring 100% Virua grapes, I encourage you to experience the 2018 Viña Real Barrel Fermented. Enjoy.

Reviewed on June 27, 2020
Produced by Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España ,Viña Real 2018 is a late-harvest, barrel-fermented 100% Viura from the Rioja wine region. Grapes are hand-harvested from vineyards located on clay-chalky soils. The grapes are pressed into new American oak barrels and cool-fermented for up to 20 days with the wine remaining on its lees for six months and with periodic stirring. Elegant and creamy on the palate with citrus, fine herb and spicy flavours. Pair with smoked fish and semi-mature cheeses. - Community Wine Reviews
