Gómez Cruzado Blanco
WINE TYPE: White
VARIETAL: 75% Viura, 25% Tempranillo Blanco
APPELLATION: Rioja Alta
Founded in 1886, in the heart of Haro’s Barrio de la Estación, Gómez Cruzado is a historic cellar and one of only sixteen “Bodegas Centenarias” in all of Rioja. Gómez Cruzado is a unique boutique winery that blends a profound respect for Haro’s heritage of fine wines with an unflagging quest for the purest expression of terroir. This wine is highly reminiscent of the white wines of Burgundy as it speaks more to terroir and not necessarily to the varietals.
The aromatics are complex with notes of honey, stone fruit and toasty oak. The palate is textured, with lots of ripe fruit, citrus, well integrated oak and a long finish.
