Product Description
Details

Honouring the great tradition tradition of Rioja white wines, three years ago the Remírez de Ganuza winery presented its new Spanish white wine.

After a thorough research and many tries to obtain the best possible blend, the winery decided to craft Remírez de Ganuza Blanco from a blend of Viura, the most important variety in the region, alongside Malvasía and, interestingly, White Grenache and other white varieties. All of the grapes com from grapevines with an average age of 60 years.

After a meticulous harvest, once in the cellar the grapes were kept cold for 24 hours and carefully selected. Then the free-run juice was fermented in new French oak barrels and subsequently aged for 10 months. During that period, the barrels were perodically rotated to stir the lees. Finally, it was further aged for 10-12 months in the bottle.

Aerate Remírez de Ganuza Blanco 2018 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

Clean and bright, the white wine Remírez de Ganuza has a pale yellow colour with some waxy tinges.

Nose

Pleasantly intense, Remírez de Ganuza Blanco smells of bone fruit and white fruit, with some remembrances of pastry, honey and aniseed over a background of aromatic herbs. This blend of Malvasía and Viura, as well as White Grenache and other white varieties also insinuates some elegantly mineral nuances.

Palate

Dense, complex, with remarkable potential for growth. The considerable structure of this wine by Remírez de Ganuza is sustained by a solid acidity and a much welcomed freshness. Juicy white fruit, citrus, aniseed, eucaliptus, balsam and herbs come to mind, gracefully parading through the palate. Again, a mineral touch, this time with an intriguingly saline twist. Long finish.

Our personal opinion

Substantial and rather sophisticated, Remírez de Ganuza Blanco 2018 will improve considerably in the bottle over the next years.

Go Fernando!!

Fernando has hit the bulls-eye with this white. The texture is simply amazing: creamy, layered and nuanced. One feels the terroir, and the complexity is already there, but it will increase over the next years.

Fabulous. I'd trade a a case of my premox white burgundies for 2 bottles of ganuza blanco. Lush and self-assured, immensely pleasurable.
