- Bodegas Izadi Rioja Blanco 2013 Product #31016 (In Stock)
A lovely example of white Rioja with just a kiss of oak to go with the dense texture and ripe, lemony fruit.
"A blend of Viura with 20% Malvasía fermented in new oak barrels where it aged in contact with the lees with frequent bâttonage for three months. The nose is quite serious and balanced showing moderate effect of the yeasts and oak, waxy aromas of apples, hints of honeycomb, fennel and licorice. The palate is quite fresh and surprisingly fruit-driven with good acidity and clean flavors. It's approachable and should also be able to age and improve in bottle for a few years. Quite impressed!"Wine Advocate 90 points
