2018 Rioja Tempranillo Blanco, Finca Manzanos
Tempranillo Blanco is a rare grape variety indeed. Originally spotted by an eagle eyed Rioja vigneron whilst tending his Tempranillo Rosso vines back in 1988, in 2007 this white mutation was subsequently added to the permitted varietals list within the region. What we have here is a variety which is 97% true to its red varietal DNA, yet is a million miles away stylistically in the wine glass.
Cool crisp and sherbet scented, there is a vibrancy and lifted zing in this refreshing, mandarin fruited dry white Rioja. A dash of creamy oak adds further texture to the mid-palate whilst lending great ageing potential. A truly unique wine which we absolutely adore. There is absolutely nothing else like it, either to drink alone or with light salads; it is the epitome of great modern winemaking. A variety to watch as it starts to find its way into the UK wine market, this is a genuinely singular wine and one of outstanding pedigree.
