Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco 2015, Limited Edition

£15.95

This wine has been selected as part of our ‘guest’ wine range due to its quality and artisanal approach to winemaking. This limited edition wine is produced using the rather rare Tempranillo Blanco – which is a genetic mutation of the dark skinned Tempranillo grape. In fact this grape has less than 30 years of history yet has the potential to produce fabulous wines.

Tasting notes

Only 6,850 bottles of this limited edition wine were produced in 2015. This vintage has been fermented in French oak barrels which imparts a gorgeously toasty profile to the wine. On the nose, after a few minutes in the glass, you can expect to enjoy the aromas of roasted almonds, ripe peach, cashew, toast, and citrus infused vanilla. The palate, whilst possessing rich stone fruit and toasty spice, lends vibrant acidity which enables a sense of freshness. This wine is perfectly balanced, complex and almost too easy to drink.
