VITICULTURE & OENOLOGY
Wineries and Vineyards Puente del Ea are located in Sajazarra, a beautiful town in the region of Haro (La Rioja, Spain).
Barrel Fermented Puente del Ea White is an unusual white wine due to its production process. We use ripe grapes of the Viura variety from well-selected old vineyards. Harvested in boxes, manual selection and then fermented in new 225-liter French oak barrels specially selected for white wines.
A daily work of lees with continuous batonage that gives it structure and volume in the mouth, which together with its subsequent aging of 6 months in the same barrels gives us a more than interesting aging wine.
The wine is presented in a Bordeaux bottle with a natural cork stopper.
At sight, yellow color with greenish trim, bright and clear.
In the nose, high aromatic intensity. Citrus fruits with bone and tropical fruit. Slight toasted notes.
In the mouth, bulky with perfect balance acidity-alcohol. It emphasizes its unctuousness due to the work on lees, which makes it long and glyceric. Rich and complex aftertaste that highlights the potential of the new barrel.
Fish, seafood, cheeses, tapas and salads.
Between 8º and 10ºC
