Akemi Rioja Blanco Felix Jimenez, Bodegas Ontanon, Rioja, Spain, 2019
Grape: 100% Viura, organic, 35 year old vines, oaked
The Akemi Blanco is made from 100% old-vine Viura from a single plot. Aged in predominantly second-use American oak, the wine is beautifully rounded and balanced with lively acidity. The tropical and stone fruit come first followed by the creamy texture and feel.

The name Akemi means "Beautiful Dawn" and you'll find it on the menu at Kiro in Logroño where Felix makes his name.
