Characteristics of Laventura Viura
Laventura is a white wine produced in La Rioja by Laventura Wines in Logroño, La Rioja.
Bryan Mac Robert is at the head of the project. This young South African, only recently settled in La Rioja, is enthusiastic and excited to produce artisanal wines. He has spent many years learning from Eben Sadie, a key figure in the international wine-making sector. His wines attempt to capture the reality of the environment, with an ecological production and little intervention.
Laventura Viura comes from an old vineyard principally composed of the Viura variety with a few strains of other varieties. The grapes ferment in 600 litre barrels with native yeast and the wine is aged with its lees, without carrying out batonage (a technique in which the lees are removed from the wine during fermentation) to avoid giving the wine excessive body.
Laventura Viurarespects the varietal character of the wine and the earth, without allowing the wood and excessive ripeness to predominate.
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.
