Characteristics of Barón de Ley 3 Viñas Blanco Reserva
Barón de Ley Tres Viñas is a white wine from the D.O.C Rioja produced by the Barón de Ley winery (situated in Mendavia, Navarra). The winery was founded back in the 1980’s with the aim of producing classic style wines.
The winery is currently home to 400 hectares of vineyards situated across different zones of the D.O.C Rioja, with the different grape varieties adapting to the different microclimates of the DO, from the Alavesa to the Rioja Baja.
Barón de Ley Tres Viñas is a blend of three different grape varieties: Viura (70%), Garnacha (15%) and Malvasia (15%), taken from 3 different vineyards situated in the Najerilla valley, on the borders of the river Ebro in Navarra. The vineyards are home to a Mediterranean climate and the harvest is carried out manually.
The winemaking process begins with destemming and a light pressing of the grapes. The different varieties undergo the various processes of the winemaking process seperately. After being blended the wine is aged for 12 months in American oak barrels.
Barón de Ley Tres Viñas is a well bodied white wine that offers complex aromas due to its 1 year of ageing in the barrels.
La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
Barón de Ley is one of those Rioja wineries whose first wines were born with a true vocation for the future. There has probably never been a winery in the area of La Rioja of the Navarre area that has been as controversial as Barón de Ley, where the modern character of its wines encountered the first renewed tastes. And Barón de Ley, after a few years producing test wines for another winery, was very clear as to what they wanted to be and what they wanted to do: a winery with a châteaux philosophy, with its own vineyards and a limited production, based on the concept of making single-vineyard wines, modern, in the Bordeaux style but with Rioja class.
