Viña Ijalba currently has more than 90 hectares of vineyards spread over several terrains around Logroño, San Vincente de la Sonsierra and the Najerilla Valley. 70% is harvested by hand. Ijalba is also very much involved in restoring native, almost forgotten grape varieties to Rioja – varieties that bring a distinctive element to their wines.
Made from the first documented grape in Rioja, Maturana Blanca, Viña Ijalba have pioneered a project to resurrect this variety and return it to its former glory. Low yielding in comparison to the widely planted Viura, Maturana Blanca has a more aromatic style and picks up the minerality inherent to the area beautifully. 10% of this wine is oaked giving complex creamy, nutty nuances to the fresh citrus and stone fruit character and long, round finish.
