Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The queen of white varieties in Rioja produced an insinuating and caressing 2019 Viura, which is a little shy and austere but showcases the character of the variety quite well; not very aromatic but well built, solid and with good freshness and the stuffing and clout to take barrel aging and develop nicely in bottle. Of course, the wine is drinkable now, like the rest of the whites, but I think it will be so much better with some time in bottle that it feels like a shame to open it now. It's textured and rich, with nice balance. in 2019 they produced 2,940 bottles.
