Tentenublo Blanco 2014
Tentenublo blanco procede de viñedos de entre 60 y 35 años situados en la localidad de Viñaspre (Álava). Los suelos dedicados a este vino son pocos profundos, con una roca madre arenisca y paquetes de margas de baja intensidad. El paladar muestra buen volumen, con una sensación mineral al final.

Opinión de los críticos
"The white 2014 Tentenublo is produced exclusively with grapes grown in the village of Viñaspre, from a vintage complicated by some rain during the harvest. The wine is produced with the cherry-picked white grapes from five different plots. It's a blend of a grape that is not often mentioned, but exists: Calagraño or Jaén Blanca with about 30% Malvasía Riojana and 20% Viura. The whole clusters were pressed with a manual vertical press and the juice put to ferment in 500-liter Hungarian and 300-liter American oak barrels, where the wine matured for five months. The wine felt tight and very mineral, like if it was made with stones rather than grapes, with a chalky austerity. These 'neutral' wines are very transparent with the character of the soils. The palate shows very good volume, with lively, almost citric acidity and finishes with a mineral, tasty, almost salty sensation, especially when you lick your lips afterwards. An austere, mineral, serious Rioja white. 1,866 bottles were filled in April 2015."
