Food & Wine Features Rioja White Wines to Drink All Spring
As trade professionals we know that while Spain may be recognized best for its red wines, right now there’s tremendous energy and ambition to be found there in the white wine realm, too. Food & Wine magazine writes about Rioja Wines here.
Here are a few wines they/we recommend stocking/ordering/drinking:
2015 Marqués De Murrieta Capellanía Rioja Blanco ($30)
Deep gold in hue, this graceful white comes from one of the greatest names in Rioja. Ripe pears and almonds, a toasty oak note—it’s superb now and should also age well for years.
2017 Palacios Remondo Plácet De Valtomelloso Rioja Blanco ($45)
Hints of smoky oak play over the lime-accented acidity and green-apple flavors of this streamlined white Rioja from Alvaro Palacios, one of Spain’s greatest winemakers.
Even our Rioja’s classic Viura shouldn’t be ignored.
