Characteristics of El Coto Blanco

El Coto Blanco is a white wine from Rioja produced by the El Coto de Rioja winery. Founded in 1970, the winery is located in the town of Oyón (Álava).

The El Coto de Rioja winery have more than 700ha of vineyards, one of the largest cellars of La Rioja in this sense.

El Coto Blanco is a varietal Viura. The grapes come from vineyards grown in the Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Alta, two of the three sub-areas that divides the DO Rioja.

For processing the grapes, once they have reached the winery, they are protected from oxidation by a curtain of carbonic gas.

Subsequently, a press takes place in pneumatic presses and racking and cleaning of musts at low temperatures is performed. With these clean musts, fermentation takes place at a low temperature in the presence of selected yeasts.

Tasting notes El Coto Blanco

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.
Sight Pale yellow with green hues. Clean and bright. Nose High intensity, aromas of white fruits with citrus notes. Hints of pineapple and herbaceous notes with a balsamic background. Taste Good entry, fresh and powerful. Round and balanced tannins. Fruity and silky step, with a long lingering finish.
