Region

The region of La Rioja lends its name to Spain`s most widely recognised wines. Much Rioja is blended from three districts; Alta and Alavesa to the north and the hot dry Oriental district to the south (previously known as Rioja Baja) and uses Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo red grape varieties and the diminishing influence of extended ageing in oak barrels.

Producer

Fincas de Azabache is a state of the art cooperative, founded in December 1956. The Bodegas now owns 2600 hectares of vineyards at the foot of Mount Yerga, in the dry region of the Rioja Oriental. With limited risk of rot, it is an area conducive to the principles of organic viticulture, to which the Bodegas is firmly and successfully committed. The cooperative have recently invested heavily in a new winery, the fruits of which we are now seeing.
Tasting Notes
Limited production of 8,500 bottles this sparkling Tempranillo Blanco has intense, bright straw yellow with golden hues. Deep fruity nose, underlining aromas of white fruits and citrus, sweet notes and a delicate floral background. Elegant and silky on the palate, integrated mousse and balanced acidity. Persistent finish of white fruits and floral notes.
Food
Creamy risotto, roasted white meats and fish or as a superb aperitif.
