Intro to Allende Blanco Rioja –
Allende Blanco Rioja is an elegant wine with delicious mouth filling flavours and lingering taste.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Allende Blanco Rioja is yellow golden colour, absolute limpidity. Elegant and subtle nose with citrus fruits notes (grapefruit) and fruits with stone (peach and greengage plum), balsamic notes. Lovely textured taste with a great lightness, enormous persistent aftertaste.
The vines are grown in vineyard near Briones and the age average of the vines is 55 years planted with a high density plantation with bush pruning. There are clay soils with gravel in depth, sustainable cultivation with respect to the environment and which follows the natural cycles of the plant, with organic fertilizers and mechanical work without using herbicides. Manual harvest and the bunches are selected by hand in the winery.
We softly press the bunches in a vertical press. Static racking of free run must for 48 hours. Fermentation in new french oak barrels for 28 days at a temperature of 20 ºC.
The producer –
Finca Allende, the estate created by Brother and sister team Mercedes and Miguel Angel de Gregorio, is located in the hill town of Briones in the Rioja Alta. ‘Allende’ can be roughly translated as ‘further’; its philosophy is to go further and further towards creating the perfect Rioja. This has been done by marrying the old and the new, by embracing the traditional grape varieties but then treating them to new French oak. A further distinguishing characteristic, apart from their ripeness and structure, is that Allende’s best wines are vineyard-based, with focus on the expression of Rioja’s varied terroir.
Drink with –
It is an ideal accompaniment to salads and creamy dishes or with manchego cheese
