La Bastid 2018
Espagne - Rioja
The Rioja project is made with rented vines. La Bastid is made from Labastia vines planted on clay-limestone soils, with the Maccabeu grape variety (called Viura, in Rioja) as the main protagonist (85%), accompanied by Malvasía and white Grenache. The wine is fermented in 500-litre French oak barrels and aged for ten months.
85% maccabeu, 8% white grenache and 7% malvasía.
La Bastid is a creamy, serious and full-bodied white wine. It shows a perfect balance between fruity expression and freshness. The nose is dominated by white fruit aromas which blend perfectly with the toasted notes of the ageing process. On the palate, it is ample, silky and very long.
