REMELLURI BLANCO 2017 | TELMO RODRIGUEZ | RIOJA | 98JS

"Super white with dried-apple, peach, stone and mineral aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied with layers of really complex, ripe fruit and bright acidity. Undertones of cream and nougat. Seamless texture. Rioja’s answer to grand cru Burgundy. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."

"2017 was marked by the frost on the 27th of April and the warm summer, which resulted in a very early harvest of a small crop that produced a 2017 Blanco with high ripeness. The grapes from the high-altitude, organically farmed vines fermented with indigenous yeasts in small vats and oak casks, and the wine matured in oak foudres and 1,200-liter concrete eggs for 12 months. This is a bit more generous and exotic than the more austere 2016 I tasted last time—it has more volume and is rounder and mellower. It represents the character of the year, more Mediterranean, with notes of hay and straw, reflecting more the character of the Garnacha Blanca. 10,840 bottles were filled in April 2019."
