Tasting Notes

Luis Cañas Barrel Fermented Blanco is a consistently, beautifully balanced, refined white Rioja. It has retained its lemony freshness, whilst producing a full and rounded, fruity, dry white wine. Year on year, Luis Cañas produce this modern, lightly oaked white Rioja with beautiful balance and excellent length.  It is by far the best value, quality, barrel-fermented white Rioja we have tasted.

Made with hand-picked, hand-selected grapes from 60 year-old vines that are taken to the Bodega in small boxes. These old vine Viura and Malvasia grapes give this wine terrific complexity and finesse and the marriage with young French-oak barriques is perfect.

Family-run Luis Cañas is one of the top Rioja producers, they are located in one of the best areas in Rioja Alavesa and they take meticulous care of the their vineyards and every stage of the process through to the delicious wine in your bottle. Every year this excellent white Rioja wins awards and sells out!!

Food match:  A brilliant partner with smoked salmon.
