02/10/2016 – Lopez de Haro, White Rioja 2014

(2016) Whilst enjoying nowhere near the same fame as Red Rioja, Rioja Blanco is a very traditional style and this is a fine example at a very good price - £6.99 as part of a mixed six from Majestic until the 24th of October. Aged three months in barrel has given a definite buttery vanilla cream character to the Viura fruit which is otherwise lemony and bright. In the mouth it has some real acid grip, though medium-bodied with 12.5% alcohol, but there's that supporting creaminess again to the apple and citrus fruit.
