Luberri Zuri Blanco 2019

Rioja Alavesa, Rioja, SpainFlorentino Martinez Monje started off life as a grape supplier before deciding to set up his own winery in Rioja Alavesa. Few know as much about the region as he does, nor how to get the best out of the local vineyards. With an intimate understanding of the 32 hectares he farms, he remains a farmer first and foremost. This savoury, stony, juicy, fuller blend of viura and malvasia beams white peach, wild lemon, quince butter along a waxy palate, finishing with a bitter citrus twist and with ample stony acidity throughout. Would be beauty with roast cod or halibut.Tasted: 10 May 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 18.95 consignment Producer: Familia Monje AmestoyDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
