Siete Pasos La Fresca White Rioja 2016
SKU WT SPLFR16
Created as a passion project by a group of longtime friends, Siete Pasos crafts wines that blend the native character of Rioja with a fresh and modern approach to winemaking.
The 100% viura grapes are grown in multiple vineyards across Rioja Alta, the westernmost portion of the Rioja DOC. The higher altitude more northerly vineyards produce higher acid, moderate alcohol wines. The wine ferments for two weeks in stainless steel, followed by one month aging on lees prior to bottling.
Yellow-green straw-like tones, very bright. Fruity in the nose, with aromas of apple, a touch of citrus fruits and a nutty base. Soft and fresh entry, smooth and lingering, good medium body, with excellent harmony between acidity and fruit. Lingering, with excellent notes of soft fruits, with a very pleasant finish. Pairings: The first glass before starting a meal, boiled shellfish and mixed salads. Consumption: As with any young wine, it is recommended to be consumed within two years following its bottling and must always be stored in a cool and dark place.
