(2020) This is not the first white Rioja made from Tempranillo Blanco that I have tasted and reviewed, but examples remain as rare as hen's teeth: this is not a white wine made from the black Tempranillo grape, but from white mutation discovered only a few decades ago. Unoaked, but aged on the lees, the nose has a hint of creamy nuttiness, but a pristine set of citrus and orchard fruit aromas that are appetising and fresh. On the palate there is surprising weight and breadth of texture and flavour for a 12.5% alcohol wine, perhaps a touch of tannin from the grape adding that structural feel, and loads of shimmering juicy acidity to keep it fresh and food-friendly. Fascinating. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
