I’m again very surprised by the rating on here. I wonder if it might just be so rare to find a Viura varietal wine that people aren’t used to the different flavors? I thought this was a very nice wine. Plenty of fruit flavors, plenty of well balanced acidity, and a good bit of length. Not super complicated, but I really like this one. — 5 days ago
The Viña Real rosado was made from Garnacha, Tempranillo and Viura grapes grown in the Rioja Alavesa subregion. The nose carries plenty of ripe, red strawberries with a hefty herbal influence, as if the green stems are included. On the palate, the fruit elbows the green out of the way, but a lovely, earthy apricot flavor is introduced. Acidity is good, if not ripping, and the wine’s finish is rather lengthy and very pleasant.

The nose is full of citrus - lemon, lime and bit of orange, a splash of grapefruit - with some excellent minerality and salinity on the other side of the scales. The palate follows suit, with an acidity level that is nice, but not quite as racy as I expected. Minerals linger on a finish that serves as a lovely reminder of a beautiful sip of white wine.

I can imagine this is not everyone’s cup of tea..uhm..wine😁. I like it though. Deeply aromatic bouquet of baked apple, vanilla, dried peach,mixed with nuts. Palette is intense, dried fruits, smokey, butterscotch, with enough lemon zest to keep it fresh and uplifting. — 5 days ago
WNH Zoom tasting #3 on 4/5/20. The theme was “10 years old or more” and I opened this after what I’d call a false start with a ‘96 Dominus Napanook. The cork was a bit soggy and difficult to extract and a sour nose greeted me as I decanted to remove a fair amount of sediment. But once the air hit it this wine spread its wings. It comes off as a hypothetical Volnay/Rioja blend as if there were such a thing. Mature warm red fruit, strong notes of rhubarb, cranberry preserves and sour raspberry mash. Very slight green notes but not in a negative sense. There’s still youthful exuberance here. This isn’t one of those “it’s drinking great for its age” wines it’s straight up exceptional. Great house. Great wine. Hell yes. Happy Bicentennial 🇺🇸🍷 — 3 days ago
