The Viura grapes come from 9 hectáreas of bush whites vines planted in 1973 at 400 meters in altitude on clay-rich soils in the village of Torremontalvo. The vineyard is protected from the frost by a small mountain, Barbarroja. South oriented and with a slight inclination.
Once the grapes achieved optimum ripeness, the bunches were picked by hand.
In the cooler 2018, the grapes were picked in mid-October, a little later than normal, and the juice from the pressing of the full clusters fermented in a combination of concrete and oak vats and also some barriques. It matured in barrel for 18 months.
In the past, CVNE produced some uncompromising whites, meant for ageing. Fashion left us behind and this grand tradition sadly faded away.
Now its’ back with Cune Reserva Blanco (amongst others). And this time, we don’t care what fashion thinks.
