Honorio Rubio Macerado
is a white wine made in the D.O.C.a Rioja
by Honorio Rubio
, La Rioja. Honorio Rubio
is a winery located in the subzone of the Rioja Alta
. It owns 15 hectares of vineyards spread across the town of Cordovin. The main varieties are Tempranillo, Garnacha
. Honorio Rubio Macerado
is made with the Viura
variety by means of macerating its skins. Through this maceration of the white grape's skins, it is possible to protect the must without having to add sulphur.
As a result, we have a more orange-coloured wine, with some tannins from the maceration of the skins. A very interesting white wine. Honorio Rubio
has started making these limited productions to test ancestral production methods that have existed for many years.
