Opinión de los críticos
From the village of Rivas de Tereso/Labastida, the 2018 Blanco de Sierra de Toloño comes from different plots and is mostly Viura. It has a salty minerality and the freshness from this northern and cooler zone. Despite a very late harvest in mid-October, the wine is only 12.5%, and it's bottled without malolactic, kept in stainless steel with the lees, which are stirred until bottling. It's fruit-driven with notes of pear and waxy apples, a bit shy and with very good acidity and freshness. It should develop further complexity with a little more time in bottle. 9,000 bottles produced. It was bottle in March 2019.
There’s an apple and pear mix here that has fresh allure on the nose and delivers a zippy and attractively fresh palate that has good weight, flesh and a gently creamy, apple sorbet-like finish. Drink now.
Sandra Bravo sources this high-altitude Viura from Rivas de Tereso, fermenting it entirely
in stainless steel. The old vine concentration is apparent on the palate here, with lees contact
adding some extra texture before the citrus peel acidity kicks in. 2020-22
