- Cune Viura Rioja Monopole 2015 Product #31742 (In Stock)
All tank/no oak and supremely delicious! Almost creamy in texture with honeysuckle, almond blossom and peach flavors lingering.
"Aromas of grapefruit skin, green apples and dried pineapple in addition to some mineral undertones. Well-composed white Rioja with poignant acidity that's nevertheless in harmony with the texture and volume of fruit. Medium finish." James Suckling 90 points
"This white is fresh and bright, but also dense, with a firm backbone of crisp acidity that carries pear, McIntosh apple and verbena flavors. The juicy, floral finish brings you back for another sip. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points
- 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
