Late, winter harvest. The grapes were picked manually in small 10 kg cases, separately by grape variety, producing tiny yields due to dehydration. After a long, mild pressing the grape must was allowed to ferment for about a month and a half in French oak barrels.


12-month stay in French oak barrels from different cooperages, with different toasting levels and origins. Each of the wines was left in contact with its fine lees until bottling, with periodic bâtonnages during the first months. The wines were racked and bottled and subsequently aged for almost another year in the bottle.


Pale-orange with green hues; clean and bright. Very pleasant intense aromas of candied fruit, dried peaches, orange confit and quince jelly, all of it enveloped in elegant floral and cocoa notes. Sensual and delicate in the mouth, with a delicate, fresh, well-integrated fruity sweetness that makes it a long, tasty and pleasant wine.


We recommend serving and drinking it at 10 to 12 °C so you can enjoy its complete balance of aromas, delicate sweetness and freshness. It is an ideal wine to enjoy as an aperitif, by itself, or with foie gras or strong cheese (roquefort, cabrales, etc.). It is also surprising with cold shellfish (oysters, lobsters...) and is a great companion as dessert wine with all kinds of cakes, sweets and seasonal fruit. It is also recommended as postprandial wine to accompany a pleasant conversation.



Colección Vivanco 4 Varietales Dulce de Invierno is the result of years of research in which Rafael Vivanco sought to recover the practically-disappeared traditional Rioja sweet wines. Known as "supurados", these wines were produced from grapes that were dried during the winter in the attics of winemakers and enjoyed as a dessert wine on special days and as a restorative.


This naturally sweet wine, it is made with a late —winter— harvest of botrytised grapes of traditional Rioja varieties that are grown in this unique terroir —Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha and Mazuelo. It is a wine for laying down and a pioneering initiative in Rioja which will gain in complexity throughout its life in the bottle, as is the case with the internationally renowned sweet wines of Sauternes or Tokaji.
