This white wine from Bodega Familia Irurtia is ideal for all connoisseurs who like as little sweetness as possible in their wine. However, it is never austere or brittle, but round and smooth. On the palate, this powerful white wine is characterized by an incredibly crisp texture. Thanks to its moderate fruit acidity, the Km.0 Viognier Gran Reserva flatters the palate with a pleasing sensation without lacking in juicy liveliness. On the finish, this white wine from the Colonia wine-growing region, which can be stored well, finally impresses with its considerable length. There are again hints of apricot and peach. On the finish, mineral notes from the limestone-dominated soils are added.
Vinification of the Bodega Familia Irurtia Km.0 Viognier Gran Reserva
This white wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, namely Viognier. Only the best grapes were harvested for this exceptionally powerful single-varietal wine from Bodega Familia Irurtia. The grapes grow close to the river in Colonia. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into limestone soils. Due to the balancing influence of the nearby river, the grapes ripen more slowly and develop more aromatic depth. The grapes for this white wine from Uruguay are harvested exclusively by hand when they are perfectly ripe. After harvesting, the grapes are transported to the press house as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. This is followed by fermentation in small oak barrels at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn off.
Recommendation for the Km.0 Viognier Gran Reserva from Bodega Familia Irurtia
This white wine from Uruguay is best enjoyed moderately chilled at 11 - 13°C as an accompaniment to Japanese-style mackerel fillet with vegetable julienne, spicy chestnut soup or spring rolls filled with minced meat.
