Ontañón Vetiver Rioja Blanco

Whilst not exactly mainstream, white Rioja is now most definitely a ‘thing’. With examples like this it’s easy to see why. Produced solely from Viura and given 4 months in American oak to mellow you get just the right balance between ripe tropical fruit and toasty brioche.

Tasting Notes

Opulent aromas of pear and jasmine, with tropical notes and well-integrated but obvious oak. The palate is poised with vanilla oak characters, but left fresh by balancing acidity. Flavours of pineapple, crisp lemon, and brioche notes on the finish.

Vinification

Produced solely from Viura grapes grown in the Siete Caminos vineyard, on south-east facing slopes. This wine is aged according to the typical white Rioja method: 4 months in American oak followed by 6 months in bottle prior to release.

Food Matching

Lobster or langoustines with cream-based pasta sauce, or roast chicken dishes.
