Exceptional Wine

Hook and Ford

Rioja Blanco, Remelluri 2012/2013 - Organic & Biodynamic


This is a pretty rare, geeky little number. In fact, we don't have many bottles!

When I tasted it recently, all my note said was, "Yum!!!!!!" Yup, 6 !'s. It is not a traditional white rioja, which would be made from Macabeo/Viura and Malvasia. This wine has an unbelievable line-up of grapes -

Viognier, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Marsanne, Sauvignon Blanc, Garnacha Blanca, and Moscatel del Pais

This gives it an incredible array of smells and tastes, from floral heather and blossom to pear, apple, lychee and guava!

Pair it with a special white fish - halibut, john dory, turbot... perhaps lightly curried (turmeric, cardamom) and served with an apple chutney, or poultry.

Jancis Robinson gives this 17.5+/20:  Sweetly woody nose and just a touch of cedar. Herbal honey and lemon. Rich, deep and intensely fresh with honeyed but crisp lemon flavours, verging on something riper. Super-generous and much more complexity to come.
