Press Review

Very much a part of the modern white wine revolution in Rioja ... it's salty, sappy and refreshing, with quince and grapefruit flavours and a dusting of sweet spices.

- Tim Atkins

Overview

A classic blend of indigenous varieties Viura, Malvasía, Garnacha Blanca, Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Blanca and Turruntés, the Selección Blanco from Izadi comes from 50–60-year-old bush vines planted on chalky soils in Rioja Alavesa. After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, then fermented mainly in stainless steel tanks with a small percentage in new French oak barrels.
