Rioja Blanco Mi Villa
Clean, Elegant, Fresh, Intense
10% Granacha, Viura
Rioja Blanco is a bright golden yellow, intense bouquet of white flowers and grape.
Clean limes and crisp apple palate. Balanced elegant finish.
Food Match: Delicious as an aperitif, with fish or for everyday drinking.
Good clean acidity in the young wine. These characteristics used to be masked by heavy oaked ageing; however this also functioned to cover problems in the wine making. This is characteristic of many of the old Spanish white wines. Grapes were harvested often a little late but still during the warm autumn months. Grapes began to ferment before they reached the winery which resulted in the brown-tinged oxidized whites of the past.
Thankfully new wine making and night time harvest ensures we get crunchy, vibrant white wine that make us feel that we are on a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean. Bodegas Perica Rioja Blanco has no oak.
