WOW: Wine of the Week

Enter a New Bodega: Luis Canas Rioja Blanco 2013

Chandon Nautical Summer
The Summer isn't getting any cooler - in fact, in most place it has just begun!  What better to quench the thirst of wine drinkers than a crisp, bright and refreshing white wine?!

New to is Bodega Luis Canas Rioja Blanco.  At UNDER $16 per bottle, this a Summer staple for even the most die-hard red wine drinkers!

Product Description

"The Cañas family has been growing grapes and producing wine to be sold in bulk for generations. Founder Luis Cañas was born in 1928, and it was in 1989 when his son, Juan Luis took over as general manager of the operation. Luis is no longer a young man, but still plays an active role in the winemaking process.
Today, the winery processes some 2 million kilos of grapes every year (166,666 cases). In recent years, the clear focus has become meticulous care of the vineyards. The winery owns or directly manages some 350 hectares of vines, a large majority of which are small parcels, many of which are very old - some more than 100 years of age, growing on nutrient-poor chalky clay soils. The careful management of 870 individual plots is what makes the difference. While not 100% organic, the winery takes an environmentally-friendly approach with minimal use of control agents." - Winery Notes

Bodega Luis Canas Rioja Blanco 2013 Tasting Notes

"Beautiful golden yellow, with bright lemony highly-luminous reflections. The nose is fine, with great elegance, combined with floral and fruity tones.  The palate is dry with a crisp acidity that gives its freshness and vivacity, a structured and tasty finish of ripe fruit." - Winemaker Notes
Blend: 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia
