Vetiver Rioja Blanco 2009
Bodegas Ontanon, Rioja
Made from 100% Viura, this his an elegant wine with juicy fruit with a hint of sherbert lemons, finishing with lemon zest
Finca de Arantei Albarino 2011
Bodegas La Val, Rias Baixas
Made from Spain’s most famous white grape, this Albarino doesn’t disappoint – herbaceous aromas with lovely concentration and mouthfeel against a steely, almost Riesling, background.
Castell de Remei Oda Blanc 2008
Costers de Segre
A touch of American oak on the nose, ice cream soda, raisins and spice on the palate with fresh zingy acidity at the finish. This is a wine very much in the white Rioja style and very long in flavour, and becoming more and more complex with bottle age.
