The initials CVNE stand for Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España, though the name is often depicted as CUNE.
Cune Blanco is made with a selection of the best Viura vines from the sub-areas of Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, which combine ideal characteristics for growing vines.
Following cold maceration on skins, the grapes are pressed gently, and the must is transferred into stainless steel tanks where it is fermented at a controlled temperature. Once this process has been completed, the wine is clarified naturally for bottling and subsequent sale.
A rare one to find here in the UK, especially as young as 2022.
