Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco 2022
Founded in 1882, visionary Rioja Vega is the oldest winery in all of Rioja. It is also one that makes alongside its famous reds a sumptuous Rioja Blanco from a white mutation of the regions trademark red varietal (tempranillo) that was discovered only as recently as 1988.
Here is a gloriously rich wine which, fermented in oak barrels, shows hints of honey, tropical fruit and mountain flowers and is the perfect autumn glass to be savoured as an aperitif or with food such as grilled fish, paella and tapas.
