White Wine Izadi Blanco 2020
Availability: In stock
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.
The wine Izadi Blanco is medium straw with some greenish tinges.
Fresh and complex, this blend of Viura, Malvasía, White Grenache, White Tempranillo, Maturana Blanca and Torrontés carries some fresh, lively aromas of ripe white fruit, along with notes of peaches and english custard. There is a smokey background with a hint of aromatic herbs and toast.
Creamy and pleasant, this white blend from Bodegas Izadi has a velvety body, a refreshing acidity and smooth tannins. This white wine fermented in oak suggests some remembrances of cream, smoke and ripe white fruit. Long, spicy finish.
