Izadi Rioja Blanco 2019

Rioja, SpainIzadi Blanco is a 65/10/10/5/5/ mix of viura, malvasía, garnacha blanca, tempranillo blanco, maturana blanca, and turruntés, grown in some of the oldest vineyards in Rioja. The brand Izadi is young by Rioja standards, with just over three decades of production, but there is a feeling, a soul, for wine that belies that youth. A small percentage is barrel-fermented, and the result is a creamy, round palate. Expect an exuberant, juicy white with notes of quince, ripe apple, nectarines, and citrus. It begs you to serve it with food, from chicken to sushi to west coast seafood.Tasted: 11 April 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.99 BCLS AB 26.99 private wine shops Producer: Bodegas IzadiDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
