Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria Organza
Sierra Cantabria Oganza is a white wine produced by the Viñedos Sierra Cantabria winery in the Rioja region. Viñedos Sierra Cantabria is a small winery that belongs to the Sierra Cantabria group, owned by the Eguren family, also owners of the wineries Teso la Monja in Toro and Sierra Cantabria and Dominio de Eguren also in Rioja. Sierra Cantabria Organza is a classic riojan blend white wine, containing the varieties Viura, Malvasía and Grenache Blanc. The grapes come from the wineries own vineyards situated in San Vincente de la Sonsierra, in the Rioja Alta.
The vinyards are cultivated in an ecological manner which is respectful to the environment. Infact, the Sierra Cantabria does not use chemical products, only organic fertilizers every 2 years.
The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes being transported to the winery in small boxes of no more than 20kg, which ensure they remain in the best condition possible. On arrival at the winery, the best bunches are again selected at a selection table. The grapes then undergo cold maceration for 12 hours before being fermented in new French oak barrels from Vosgues at 14-16ºC with indigenous yeasts.
Sierra Cantabria Organza is then aged for 9 months in barrels. The wine spends the first six months on its lees, with battonages occuring every week.
It is an elegant white wine, flavourful and complex and serves as a brilliant example of barrel aged white wines in the Rioja region.

SightVery bright and clean golden colour. Very good and glyceric legs.NoseIntense and fine aromas of fruit among which white fruits (green apple) and citrus take centre stage. Its subtle minerality and its wide creamy notes round out this wine.TasteAs its name suggests (Organza), this white wine by Sierra Cantabria is pure silk and one of the best and most elegant.
It has a very good attack and a very tasty, silky and unctuous mid palate. The white fruit and citrus reemerge along with a touch of herbs and nuts. Wooden notes are barely noticed, since they are very well integrated with some smoky notes. Fine acidity that provides the adequate freshness. Long and very persistent finish.
Very elegant wine.
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.
Bodega Sierra Cantabria is located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a town with long winemaking history in the heart of La Rioja. The winery is a member of the Eguren family, a family of winemakers who have been in La Rioja for five generations and also have wineries in other DOs, such as the winery Teso la Monja in the DO Toro.
