D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
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 blend of Viura, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdejo. 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.
