Unveiling the Ochoa Uva Doble Viognier Viura: A Delightful Spanish White

For those seeking a fresh, vibrant white wine, look no further than the Ochoa Uva Doble Viognier Viura. This Spanish gem, crafted by the renowned Bodegas Ochoa in Navarra, offers a captivating blend of Viognier and Viura grapes, resulting in a flavour profile that's both intriguing and immensely satisfying.

A Family Tradition: The Legacy of Bodegas Ochoa

Bodegas Ochoa boasts a rich heritage spanning over 160 years. This family-run winery has established itself as a leading producer in Navarra, meticulously cultivating vines and crafting exceptional wines that rival the best from neighbouring Rioja. Their dedication to quality shines through in every bottle, and the Ochoa Uva Doble Viognier Viura is no exception.

Unveiling the Uva Doble: A Blend of Two "Vs"

The name "Uva Doble" translates to "double grape" in Spanish, a clever nod to the wine's core components – Viognier and Viura. Viognier, a French grape variety known for its aromatic intensity, brings notes of apricot, honeysuckle, and white peach. Viura, also known as Macabeo, is a Spanish grape that adds a refreshing acidity and a touch of minerality. This masterful blend creates a wine that's both complex and eminently drinkable.

Aroma: On the nose, a delightful explosion of aromas awaits. Ripe stone fruits like apricot and peach take centre stage, complemented by floral notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. Hints of citrus, such as grapefruit and lemon zest, add a touch of freshness, while a subtle minerality lingers in the background.

Palate: The first sip of the Ochoa Uva Doble is a revelation. The wine is light-bodied and incredibly refreshing, with a vibrant acidity that cuts through the creamy texture imparted by the Viognier grapes. The flavours echo the aromas, with juicy stone fruits and citrus melding seamlessly. A touch of minerality adds complexity and depth, making this wine truly captivating.
