This is Rioja does Burgundy in many ways, a rich barrel-fermented white with its time in small French oak lending a beautifully nutty and gently custardy tone to the ripe but fresh Viura and Malvasia blend. Aromatically it is complex, with touches of sunflower seed and delicate spices, a note of leafiness and a rich lemon and lime rind waxiness. On the palate it has a thrilling balance of cool, citrus and chilled melon precision and more ripe, lightly exotic fruit tones. Acidity is the key here, a rapier blade through the richness and creaminess of the texture. Delightful stuff for smoked salmon or lobster, but has the oomph to be a decent roast turkey choice if white is your thing.
