Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco Colección, La Rioja, Spain, 2017 

100% Tempranillo Blanco with six months on its lees in french oak. 

Straw-yellow color, glyceride, very bright. Complex and expressive aromas, intense notes of tropical fruits and white flowers over delicate hints of herbs.
Unctuous and sweet silky texture from the ageing on its fine lees in French oak barrels. A complex wine will keep well for many years to come. 

Try with pate, cheese and tapas. Lobster, oyster and oven baked fish. 

BEST WHITE WINE FROM SPAIN 

In the extensive article “The Best Wines of the Rioja Masters 2018” published in its December Spain Report, the director of the tastings and Master of Wine, Patrick Schmitt, highlights the exceptional quality of this Tempranillo Blanco: 

“I, for one, wasn’t sure it (the Tempranillo Blanco grape variety) could make a lovely and complex balanced white as a monovarietal offering. Having blind-tasted Rioja Vega’s Tempranillo Blanco Colección, however, I now know it can. This gently aromatic, slightly peachy wine, packed with citrus and cream – the latter from a touch of barrel ageing – is an exciting find in the world of Spanish whites, and was awarded a Gold from all the judges. It also provided much-needed refreshment after the day’s tasting was over, thanks to its breadth and brightness”. 

A single tiny vineyard which yields high-quality grapes of a rare variety is all what it takes to make Rioja Vega Colección Tempranillo Blanco an exceptional wine. This estate has advocated since its very foundation in 1882 for terroir as the authentic winemaker of its wines, a belief that has translated into tremendous success. Some of the most recent awards is Rioja Masters 2018’s election as Best White Wine from Rioja and, already back in May, Mundus Vini wine contest selection of Rioja Vega Colección Tempranillo Blanco 2017 as BEST WHITE WINE FROM SPAIN.
