The wine

The Inconsciente Tempranillo Blanco is a deliciously exotic Rioja wine; one of those wines that grabs your attention as soon as you try it. The local grape variety used to produce it is still not widely grown here and was not officially accepted by the DOC appellation until about 10 years ago, but immediately surprises and delights wine drinkers with its aromas and texture.

The vineyards are located in Aldeanueva de Ebro. The grape bunches are de-stemmed at the cellar and gently pressed before the must is fermented at a controlled temperature. It then remains in stainless steel tanks for six months, pumped over (remontage) weekly to gain texture and complexity.

The resulting wine is an extraordinary and crisp interpretation of a grape with much to offer. A straw/gold colour with the odd hint of rosé, the Inconsciente has notes of passion fruit and freshly-cut grass in the nose, with touches of peach and talcum bringing to mind the dusty stones from the vineyards. It has a citric and seductive palate, and sharp citric tones over a spongy, almost lychee, background. Its complexity and elegant dryness give the impression that the wine has aged for a lengthy time, but it is not so. Its qualities are down to the excellent fruit and the careful work carried out during its production. Over time flowery aromas (lilies and magnolias) appear and slightly bitter hints which make it an elegant drink which becomes more fatty and balanced with every sip. The Inconsciente represents a firm and brave commitment to recovering lost flavours and the old Rioja tradition of producing top-quality white wines.
