Grapes are hand-picked and pressed before the wine rests in stainless steel vats between 7 to 8 months. Fruity and elegant there is a nice balance between slight oxidation and acidity. Ageing on its lees gives a lovely crea,yness. This is a real gem of a white Rioja and a far cry from the over oaked examples you find. 

Notes on the producer

Bodegas Moraza has been in the Moraza family for six generations, but it was when Janire Moraza convinced her father and uncle to convert their 18 hectares of land to organic farming techniques that things got truly interesting. Today, the varietal wines produced by Janire and Patricio come from vines located amid thriving biodiversity in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Rioja Alta. Unlike many modern Riojas, tailored to an international market, Bodegas Moraza uses purely traditional methods, resulting in fresh, oak less and authentic characteristics. Rather than mixing grapes from different estates to produce the familiar taste of conventional Rioja, the wines are the result of the complexity of the terroir.
