Bodegas Tarón presents Patiens 2016, an immortal wine that follows the tradition of the historic white wines of Rioja Alta.

An immortal wine, made in the tradition of the historic white wines of Rioja Alta”. This is how Patiens 2016 is defined, the new white wine by Bodegas Tarón that will be released in the coming weeks and that aspires to position itself among the top ranges on the market.

During the first year of ageing, the wine is aged on its own lees, remaining in barrels for a further three years. Once bottled, it rests for 6 months before being released on the market, giving it refinement and roundness.
At Patiens, we combine the tradition of viura cultivation with the longevity that barrel ageing gives to white wines, creating a wine that perfectly reflects the soul of these historic vineyards.

White fruit is also perceived, such as ripe pear and quince. It has a pleasant and smooth entry, maintaining a great harmony and exquisite acidity that envelops the mouth, making it fresh and long in the mouth.
