Producer: Olivier Riviere      
Region: RiojaSpain  
Blend: 70% Viura, 30% Garnacha Blanca 
Year: 2020 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"The white 2020 La Bastid was produced with 70% Viura and 30% Garnacha Blanca from Cárdenas, one-third fermented in concrete, one-third in foudre and one-third in 600-liter barrels, where the wines matured for one year with lees but without bâtonnage. It has 13.5% alcohol and is young, fresh, aromatic, fruit driven with floral notes and a light and fresh palate. There was a change in 2018, when he started with concrete (in the past it was 100% in oak), and the wine is fresher and younger. It doesn't have a lot of acidity; it's serious and austere with a bitter twist in the finish." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"La Bastid is a blend of Viura and Garnacha Blanca originally from nine plots of vines around Labastida in Rioja Alavesa, but with the 2019 vintage, he moved this project to the red clay-limestone soils of the village of Cárdenas, where he has been expanding his vineyard holdings. Olivier considers this wine his Côtes de Nuits Blanc in his internal hierarchy." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
