Monte Llano Blanco Rioja, Ramón Bilbao
Spain – 2018
Tasting Note: Pale lemon in colour with green hues. On the nose aromas of tropical fruits such as banana and citrus fruits can be found. The palate is fresh, vibrant & fruity with a balanced acidity.
Food Matching: Works well on its own but is also perfect with seafood, vegetarian dishes & soft cheeses.
Vineyard: The 2016 vintage took place later than the previous year due to a very cold end to the winter. The summer was very dry but the stored water in winter meant that this did not impact on the quality of the fruit. Harvest took place in excellent weather conditions and produced a very good quality of fruit.
Vinification: Upon arrival at the winery the grapes are gently pressed to extract the best aromas. 50% of the grape yield is obtained. The juice undergoes a cool, slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 16-18 Deg C for two weeks. The wine is bottled fresh after fermentation.
