Finca Allende Blanco Rioja DOC 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

It is now more than 10 years since Finca Allende first released their principal cuvée Rioja Tinto and it now has a justifiably loyal following. Based in Briones in the Rioja Alta, winters are cold and summers roasting, but this strongly continental climate is tempered by the fact that the Atlantic is just 70 km away to the north-west. No leaf is left unturned in the pursuit of excellence at Allende, including above average vine-density and hand-picking only at optimal ripeness.A dense core of gold with a lighter, pale lemon at the rim, then a nose which is up front and tropical with pineapple, mango and kiwi fruit all at the very forefront and a more subtle note of star anise in reserve. The palate is generous and rounded but with just the right amount of restraint and the finish is luxurious.
