Luberri Zuri Blanco 2022

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. Fragrant white peach, melon, is lit with green apple acidity, matched with a light buffer of lees. The finish lingers with a buzz of crushed stones. A lovely fresh view of white Rioja.Tasted: 01 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
