​The Solar de Randez Blanco is made only from Viura grapes, from Raimundo’s wife’s family vineyards that are now nearly 80 years old, creating a blanco which is a dynamite example of a fresh style of white Rioja.  Coming from 4 vineyards equaling under 3 hectares, the grapes generally all face the south and sit on Rioja Alavesa’s famous calcareous clay soils.  It sat on lees for the first 4 days and is stirred twice daily, adding to the mouthfeel and balance of the wine before it was bottled and ready for the market. The finished result is elegantly crisp, but with texture and balance; accented by a lovely floral note, and loaded with sexy tree fruit aromas.
