A spicy wine with ripe fruit and vanilla tones, balanced acidity and a long elegant finish.Bodegas Ondarre, whose winery is in Viana 10KM from Logrono,Spain, has all the advantages of a bodega which was conceived and designed with a new philosophy, and equipped with the very latest vinification equipment, housed in spacious, tastefully designed buildings.The whole process of production and ageing, from the arrival of the grapes at the winery through to the extraction of the must, its fermentation at low temperatures and the selection of locally-produced yeasts, is carried out with the most advanced equipment while maintaining a respect for well-tried, traditional methods and the old wisdom of the bodegueros of the Rioja which have given such fame and prestige to the wines of the region.Bodegas Ondarre is, without doubt, one of the most modern bodegas in the Rioja, rivalling the most advanced in the world.Grapes: 100% Tempranillo BlancoRegion: Spain / Rioja DOC / Ribera del Ebro.Maker: Javier Martinez de SalinasNotes: Pale golden, buttery aroma, elegant and complex palate of ripe melon and fresh pineapple, refreshing and balanced with a soft creamy finish.Serve: At 10-12c with with hors d oeuvres, lightly smoked fish, shellfish or chicken.ABV: 12%SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS
