Category: Tags: ,

Luis Canas Barrel Fermented Rioja Blanco Luis Canas Barrel Fermented Rioja Blanco is a rich complex white that retains its freshness, from this excellent producer in the north of the Rioja region. Toasty on the nose with citrus hints and a satisfying smooth finish.

Bodegas Luis Cañas has been at the heart of Rioja since 1928 though the contemporary story begins in 1970 when Luis Cañas became the first Rioja Alavesa winemaker to bottle his young wine rather than sell it in bulk. Situated in Villabuena, Luis Cañas utilise their knowledge of the local climate, terroir, cultivation methods and a real sense of pride and dedication to create these unique wines; every harvest Luis Cañas, now 86, stands at the head of the selection table keenly ensuring only the best parcels of grapes are used. The end result is wine consistently packed with fruit and wrapped in a silky, oak laced layer of flavour that seems unique to Rioja: truly world class.
