This is Cvne's throwback to an ancient style: they make a traditional white Rioja and fortify it with a touch of Manzanilla sherry — an age-old trick to preserve the wine and make it taste (or so they thought, back in the day) more like Burgundy.
Although it doesn't taste like Burgundy to us, it is amazing: cool, mountain spring freshness meets brisk minerality and an ocean-breeze salinity. The fruit is reminiscent of green pear and fresh lemon, with a long finish. A serious, genre-defining white wine and a major Flatiron Wines favorite!

I have to say I'm completely biased when writing about this wine. Nevertheless I totally agree with the team at flatiron wines that the wine is completely unique. It will knock your pants off.
