Description

This Rioja white blend of Viura, Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc is a very refreshing wine in a crisp, dry, modern and unoaked style. In the glass, it’s filled with plenty of fruit notes such as peach, apricot, apple and a zingy sherbet. The palate follows the nose and is very lively and crisp with a light to medium body and bright acidity. It has flavours of white peaches, green apple, pineapple and a subtle saline note that caries into a clean, refreshing, fruity finish. 12% ABV. Enjoy now, but can be kept until summer 2024.

El Coto was founded in 1970. Founder Eduardo Santos-Ruiz and his team built El Coto into one of Rioja’s most popular estates. Today it is the largest landowner in the region, with more than 1800 acres across the three subzones of Rioja (Rioja Alta Oriental and Alavesa), with various different grapes being grown. While their reds are very good indeed, this white, while being relatively humble in price, is an excellent, fresh example of unoaked modern Rioja, made at their Finca Carbonera winery. Winemaker is César Fernández.
