Product Description
Details

The new vintage of Izadi Blanco from La Rioja is virtually a catalogue of native white varieties. Thus, besides the usual Viura and Malvasía, this Spanish white wine includes some White Grenache, White Tempranillo, Maturana Blanca and Torrontés.

All of them come from old vines located in Villanueva (Rioja Alavesa), planted on mild slopes with clay-limestone soils. Climate is Atlantic with a Mediterranean influence.

Harvested at their optimal ripening state in October, once in the cellar the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed prior to fermentation.

First, the wine must was fermented in stainless steel tanks, oak barrels and concrete eggs. After that, Izadi Blanco 2020 was blended and aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.

Pair this blend of six white varieties from La Rioja with creamy cheeses, white meat and oily fish recipes.

In my experience, Rioja whites age EXTREMELY well. So I bought some bottles of this, some for now, some for later.

I'm not used to drinking Rioja whites, but this was quite good!! Not overripe or oaky, the ensemble of grapes works fairly well.
