Characteristics of Ad Libitum Maturana Blanca

Ad Libitum Maturana Blanca is a white wine produced in Rioja by the Juan Carlos Sacha winery in Baños del Rio Tobia, La Rioja.

Juan Carlos Sacha is the person at the helm of the project, with 5.5 hectares of organically cultivated vineyards in the Najerilla valley, La Rioja Alta. He has been one of the driving forces behind rescuing the area’s old varieties and going back to growing wines like this Maturana Blanca. 

The Maturana Blanca vineyard is currently 16 years old after having carried out massal (mass) selection. It is harvested manually into boxes and destemmed. After static racking, it ferments in 500 litre barrels at a controlled temperature of 18ºC.

Tasting notes Ad Libitum Maturana Blanca

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
