The wine

Barón de Ley 3 Viñas Blanco Reserva is a classic white Rioja wine made with Viura, Malvasia and Grenache Blanc. Grown in the Najerilla Valley, the three varieties are vinified separately and then the final blend is aged for 12 months in American oak before being left to stand in the bottle for at least another year.

It offers a wonderfully intense and bright golden-yellow colour and delights the nose with powerful aromas of nuts (almonds) and aromatic herbs, followed by notes of honey, vanilla and autumn fruits. In the mouth, it is a lively, long-lasting, complex and deep wine with mineral, or even saline, sensations. Floral aromas and toasted cereals appear alongside a fresh and creamy feel thanks to a barely-noticeable perfectly integrated acidity. Sweet and smooth, yet expressive, Baron de Ley 3 Viñas is a flavoursome and enveloping wine with pleasant reminders of its time spent on lees and elegant hints of wood. Creamy and harmonious from the very first sip to the end, it offers slight hints of smoke and spices and an aftertaste of orange peel to delight the drinker. To sum up, an ideal wine for enthusiasts of excellent white Rioja crianza wines.

The winery

Barón de Ley

Barón de Ley

The Barón de Ley winery is located in an old monastery in the town of Mendavia, in the Navarre area of the DOCa Rioja appellation. Founded in 1985 and inspired by the Médoc châteaux in France, its Reserva and Gran Reserva wines were quickly rated among the best wines for long-term ageing. One of the few Spanish wineries listed on the stock exchange, it is now a business group bringing together names such as El...
