Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Sonsierra Viura Fermentado en Barrica is a white wine produced by the winery Bodegas Sonsierra in San Vicente de Sonsierra, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Bodegas Sonsierra was born in 1962, when more than 240 vinegrowers from San Vicente de la Sonsierra decided to create a cooperative where they could produce their own wines. This was the first cooperative in La Rioja to market its wines indicating the origin of each on the label.

Currently, Bodegas Sonsierra controls 516 hectares of their own vineyards, all of them belonging to their partners. These are planted with vines that go from 20 to 130 years old on average, distributed in 1500 small plots. Deep soils, mainly clayey-calcareous, planted only with native varieties. These vineyards are clearly influenced by a unique microclimate: mild temperatures all year round, with moderate rainfall, a good temperature difference between day and night in the ripening season, an excellent ventilation of the vines thanks to the winds that blow 80% of the days, and their South orientation with a certain tilt of the vines, favouring the plants' exposure to sunlight.

 

Sonsierra Viura Fermentado en Barrica is a wine made from Viura from their own vineyards located in the region of Sonsierra, in the heart of Rioja Alta.

The harvest is performed by hand. When it arrives at the winery, it goes through skin-contact maceration at a low temperature for 24 hours. After soft pressing, they produce the free-run must, which will be left to settle for 24 hours at a low temperature. The fermentation begins in stainless steel deposits and ends in new French and American oak barrels, where the grapes are also left for 3 and a half months to rest on their fine lees, stirring them and leaving them suspended twice a week. After this time has passed, all the wine is racked in stainless steal deposits to assemble all the barrels.

 

Sonsierra Viura Fermentado en Barrica is a silky, easy to drink wine with volume. It does not undergo malolactic fermentation to preserve all its liveliness and freshness.
