A white grape which is widely grown in Spain and France (either side of the Pyrenees). It produces mildly acidic grapes with a neutral but floral taste. It can be used to make wine on its own or can be blended with others. Commonly used to make white Rioja and blended to make Cava (along with Parellada and Xarel-lo).

The large grapes which are produced in abundance are good at withstanding oxidation. Has a lovely honeyed / grapefruit flavour to it. It is usually picked before it is fully ripe to make wine, and is used for both sweet, sparkling and rich dry wines, is particularly useful as a blending variety.

Also known as Viura or Macabeu.
