Finca Antigua or “old estate” was given this name in honor of the old vines which yield such impressive wines. This wine is made from 100% estate Viura grown at 2700 ft above sea level from a single plot named, “El Palomar”. This wine is fermented at low temperatures for 26 days with 15 hours of skin contact to preserve and enhance the brilliant fruit and floral aromas of the Viura varietal. Five months aging sur lie aging add body and complexity showing the potential of Viura.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas  of apricot, peach, pear, fennel and those characteristic of white flowers (camomile, jasmine). Reminiscent of recently-cut hay and with light hints of smoke. Silky, velvety mouthfeel that unfolds to a full body with backbone. The balanced acidity provides freshness and energy. Long and flavorsome, leaving a fruity finish, with a sensation that is even more intense than in bouquet, with marked recollections of fennel and aniseed.

Food Pairing

Fresh seafood and white fish. Creamy rice and paella. Pasta au gratin and white meat.
