PHINCA LA REVILLA, BODEGAS BHILAR
APPELLATION: D.O.Ca. Rioja (sub-region: Rioja Alavesa)
VARIETY/BLEND: 100% Viura
SOILS: Clay and limestone
FERMENTATION: The grapes were hand-harvested in 10 kg crates, destemmed and foot crushed with a natural fermentation on the skins, pressed and transferred to used 225-liter oak barrels, where the wine matured for six years. The barrels were not topped up and only racked once.
A remarkable single vineyard white wine. Six years in French oak with incredible freshness. A look back to the past and a homage to the classical spirit of a white wine from Rioja.
