Vetiver Viura, a delight from Rioja

(By Marina La Forgia) Let me introduce you to this very pleasant white wine from Bodegas Ontañon made with Viura, indigenous grape from Rioja. Vetiver is a good mix of terroir expression and winemaking. It combines intense tropical fruits aromas with some buttery and smoky notes that make it very original, onctuous and rich without losing any elegance and delicacy in the palate.

Yes, it's a 2014 vintage which means "an aged white", and it really resumes the authentic Rioja style. However, at the same time this Vetiver is an innovative and audacious type of wine that I really loved to discover. It's good to get out of the comfort zone sometimes, wine tasting speaking...right?
