LA MALDITA OR THE “LITTLE CURSED ONE” REFERENCES THE CARE AND EFFORT ASSOCIATED WITH GROWING THE DELICATE GARNACHA GRAPE IN RIOJA — BUT WE’VE NEVER BEEN AFRAID OF A CHALLENGE. THIS “LITTLE CURSE” HAS BECOME OUR GOOD FORTUNE; PRODUCING HIGH QUALITY WINE THAT CELEBRATES HERITAGE AND SHOWCASES SOME OF RIOJA’S BEST.
Region: Rioja Central & Rioja Alta
A veritable curiosity worth discovering. There are only 100 hectares of this
unique and exclusive variety left in Rioja. They are all mixed in old vineyards, in many cases, next to the red variant. It is a fresh, sensuous wine that seduces the palate. After manual picking, the wine was aged on the lees; one part in barrels, one part in a French oak vat and the other part in a stainless steel tank. An exclusive wine. Vineyards of gravel and boulders located in Alberite and Villamediana, in Central Rioja, and in Briones and San Vicente, in the Rioja Alta.
TASTING NOTES: This Garnacha Blanca, a rarity in Rioja, shows a balance of fresh citrus with aromatic herbs and a fresh, lively palate that perfectly complements richly spiced
poultry, grilled seafood dishes and creamy cheeses.
