Luberri Zuri Blanco 2021

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 is a blend of Viura and Malvasia, from 30 to 50 year old vi¬≠neyards located in Elciego and adjacent villages, fermented and rested in stainless where it remained for two months with daily b√Ętonnage. Creamy and stony, with green apple, pear custard, white florals and lemon along the medium palate, with a slight waxy / leesy sheen to pad through the stony finish.Tasted: 31 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
