Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco 2015, D.O. Rioja
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. With less than 30 years history this varietal has yet to reach its full potential, however with examples like this wine being produced it wont be long until this grape has the recognition it deserves.
22 in stock
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.
