Founded in 2004 by famed winemaker Miguel Ángel de Gregorio in the heart of Rioja Alta, Finca Nueva leads the new wave of Riojan wines that adhere to Rioja’s traditional aging and classification system, but are more fresh, fun and enjoyable on the palate than their conventional ‘old-world’ Riojan counterparts. Wines are made solely from varieties indigenous to Rioja, a region known as one of Spain’s oldest and most famous grape growing regions. Vines are planted in close proximity to the banks of the Ebro River, farmed sustainably and harvested by hand. The region’s diverse terroir and varying elevations provide complex, consumer-friendly wines that are produced by famed vintner Miguel Angel de Gregorio, one of Europe’s most celebrated winemakers, who routinely garners high honors for the wines he makes at his newest estate, or “Finca Nueva”.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Yellow gold in color with creamy aromas that are intertwined beautifully with notes of exotic fruit, including pineapple and passionfruit. Containing notes of custard and freshly toasted bread on the palate, this wine has well-integrated acidity and an incredibly pleasant finish.
Vineyard Notes
Located 2.5 hours north of Madrid near the village of Navarrete in Rioja Alta. Vines for the 2017 Finca Nueva Viura are on average 35 years old and are strategically planted in a north-northeast-facing direction, maximizing the influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean and allowing for a prolonged period of maturation. Rioja Alta’s unique terroir comprises a mixture of chalky, calcium-rich and ferrous-clay, rocky and alluvial soils. The 39 acres of vineyards controlled by Miguel Ángel are often organically fertilized and farmed sustainably. During harvest, grapes are hand-picked and, upon arrival to the winery, destemmed and then softly pressed using a vertical “basket” press. Free-run juice is statically racked over 48 hours and the wine is then fermented in barrel at 65°F, over 25 days, and aged for an additional 4 months in French oak barrels with a regular stirring of the lees. Each vintage, Finca Nueva’s barrel fermented white is bottled with a soft filtration without clarification.
Winemaker Notes
2017 began with a rather cold winter, where heavy snowfall in February transitioned into heavy rainfall towards the end of March and beginning of April. Bud break was delayed until the third week of April, promoting a larger yield than in previous vintages. May exhibited typical climatic conditions for the region and flowering took place during the third week of June. July was hot and wet, with veraison occurring during the third week of August. A raining September gave way to a dry October with mild days and cool nights. Harvest began in early October with clusters that were said to have an exceptional aromatic intensity.
