Made from the first documented grape in Rioja, Maturana Blanca, ViƱa Ijalba have pioneered a project to resurrect this variety and return it to its former glory. Low yielding in comparison to the widely planted Viura, Maturana Blanca has a more aromatic style and picks up the minerality inherent to the area beautifully. 10% of this wine is oaked giving complex creamy, nutty nuances to the fresh citrus and stone fruit character and long, round finish.
