Cune Semidulce is a white wine from the D.O.Ca. Rioja made from 100% Viuda grapes by Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España.
Cune Semidulce is made when the weather allows for optimal over-ripening of the grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand and after pressing, the must ferments in American oak barrels. This fermentation process is stopped by natural means in order to obtain a wine with residual sugar, which gives it its particular complexity and unctuousness. The optimum moment for bottling is decided by tasting.
Tasting notes of Cune Semidulce
Pale straw colour with slight greenish hints.
On the nose, good balance between the aromas of white fruit and those from the barrel such as dried fruits and smoked fruits. Perfectly assembled in the mouth thanks to a silky, fresh entry, with a slight sweetness, caramel, honey and a long aftertaste with a certain balsamic finish.
This wine goes very well with appetizers, oriental cuisine, foie, goat cheeses, and desserts, due to its mild sweetness.
