(CUNE), or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa. CVNE
is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region. Historically, some of the oldest wineries of Rioja
Alta established themselves here in order to benefit from the ease of transport via rail to the port of Bilbao, the most efficient form of transport in those days. CVNE Barrel Fermented Rioja Blanco
is made from 100% Viura and is barrel fermented, on its lees, in new American oak casks and is then left to there to age for a further 4 months prior to some bottle ageing at the bodega.
CVNE Barrel Fermented Rioja Blanco has a pale yellow colour with steely notes and tinges of green. A vibrant colour. Fresh,fragrant fruity aromas of green apple and lemon, typical of Viura. Bright and fresh on the palate, with good balancing clean acidity and a lingering rounded finish.
