Finca La Emperatriz Gran Vino Blanco 2016
Vino singular nacido de un viñedo único ubicado en la Rioja Alta. Muy expresivo en nariz, afrutado y floral. Mucha presencia de manzanilla y polen, en boca es larguísimo.

Opinión de los críticos
The boldly named 2016 Finca la Emperatriz Gran Vino Blanco is pure Viura from 50- to 60-year-old vines from their estate vineyard in the Finca la Emperatriz, from which they produce only two whites and two reds, and the rest are from grapes grown outside the property. 2016 was a cool year, very good for whites, whose grapes were picked on October 6th and 7th. Half of the wine fermented in concrete and the other half in 225-liter oak barrels, and it matured for ten months in barrique and a further ten months in concrete. It has a clean and expressive nose with notes of white flowers and fruit, chamomile, hay and pollen, with the oak neatly integrated. The palate is fresh and also quite expressive, with great freshness and a long, lingering finish. 16,752 bottles, 360 magnums and some large formats produced. It was bottled in July 2018. It will be released in February 2020. - Luis Gutiérrez.
Dried mirabelle plums and persimmon here, as well as some dried cloves and spices. Medium-bodied, fleshy and quite peachy with some pastry notes to close. Drink now.
A future Viñedo Singular from the 2017 onward, this remarkable, cooler climate Viura comes from three parcels of this large 30-hectare estate. Combining barrel-and concrete-fermented components, it has flavours, of pear, lemon zest and tangerine, with racy acidity and some aromatic spices. Rich yet zesty. 2020-24
