Rioja Blanco Finca Allende 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The gregarious Miguel Angel Di Gregorio has always put a lot of effort into his<br/>white wine; in the way that some see white Hermitage as every bit as important<br/>as its red counterpart, he feels that white Rioja is a key part of Rioja's<br/>heritage and identity. Paradoxically, however, his method of expressing this is<br/>to make a modern style ,using new French oak of quite tight grained provenance.<br/> <br/>With a blend divided equally between Malvasia and Viura, the 2007 has<br/>attractive tropical notes on the nose, backed up by hints of guava, fennel and<br/>lemon grass. The palate is generously textured, but not too plump; its oak<br/>buttress discrete but solid. The finish is creamy and rather indulgent. A wine<br/>that will accompany a variety of dishes, including lighter meats. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
