2016 Bodegas Puelles Blanco Rioja

SKU #1321382

Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. Most of the grapes for his red wines come from his own 20 hectares, which are north-facing and located at 600 meters in altitude, affording the visitor with one of the most dramatically beautiful views of Rioja's main mountain ranges: the Sierra Cantabria mountains immediately to the north and the Sierra de la Demanda mountains to the south. This white wine consists of 100% Viura. Bright, clean apple and citrus flavors combine with terrific minerality to make this one of the best values in white wine around.

White Rioja certainly deserves to be better known than it is. And here is an excellent way to delve into this delightful category! This wine is made by a pair of brothers working in a small winery in northern Rioja, and is composed entirely of Viura. The wine has some soft orchard fruit (apple and pear), but remains light and crisp in style. It is extremely food-friendly, and works well with anything from seafood to salad.

This is always one of my favorite daily white wine drinkers in the store. Composed of 100% Viura, it is crisply fruited, mineral, and fantastic as an aperitive. If your tastes lean towards fresh, dry unoaked whites, then this is your wine.
