White Rioja

This is part of a series of posts about the wines offered at Slows BBQ during the summer of 2015

IMGP4232 - Version 2

2013 Rioja Blanca, Fernández Gómez

Normally Rioja is red, but not always. Here we find a stimulating contrast: aromatic sweetness – melon, muscat – combined with a texture and finish that is decisively delicate, clean and dry.

A blend of three grape varieties:

Malvasia contributes character in the pungent attack of aromas reminiscent of melons, peaches, figs, and muscat.

Viura contributes acidity and structure

Garnacha Blanca contributes body and length on the palate

This is a versatile wine that pairs with salads as well as pork.
