4 /5

This white Sierra Cantabria Blanco is atypical white Rioja is made from grapes allowed by the appellation but very innovative. The first vintage was in 2016, when they produced less. The first volume comes with the Blanco 2018, which is an unusual blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Viura, 15% Tempranillo Blanco, Malvasia 10% and 5% Maturana Blanca. The fermented and aged in different barrels, and only the Sauvignon Blanc fermented and aged in oak to give it texture and to avoid excessive aroma's too. The Maturana has a high acidity and ensures freshness. It is very different from your average white Rioja - it has fruit and flowers and is bright and airy, but with more complexity and texture. A very complete wine with a very wide palate.
