Vina Ijalba Rioja Maturana Blanca (75cl)

Description

Unique wine from Rioja's almost-extinct white grape
Made from the first documented grape in Rioja, Maturana Blanca, Viña Ijalba have pioneered a project to resurrect this variety and return it to its former glory. Low yielding in comparison to the widely planted Viura, Maturana Blanca has a more aromatic style and picks up the minerality inherent to the area beautifully. 10% of this wine is oaked giving complex creamy, nutty nuances to the fresh citrus and stone fruit character and long, round finish. 92 Points - Guia Penin 2019 (2018 vintage)

Taste

Textured and complex, Vanilla-sprinkled peach fruit

Aroma

Roasted peach and mock orange, Toasted hazelnuts

Viña Ijalba currently has more than 90 hectares of vineyards spread over several terrains around Logroño, San Vincente de la Sonsierra and the Najerilla Valley. 70% is harvested by hand. Ijalba is also very much involved in restoring native, almost forgotten grape varieties to Rioja - varieties that bring a distinctive element to their wines.
