Description

I’m a big fan of the Remelluri winery and Telmo Rodriguez so I could not ignore their top white Rioja, Remelluri Blanco 2020. It’s something of a cult wine, a beautiful field blend of nine different white wine varieties permitted in the Rioja appellation. Field blends are sometimes looked down upon as winemakers simply even lazily blending together all the different grapes in their vineyards but this one has been a pet project of Telmo for some years and his view is very much that terroir is king rather than any one grape variety and that this field blend expresses perfectly the terroir of the relatively high altitude vineyards in Labastida in Rioja Alavesa. In this wine from old vines on the Remelluri estate owned by Telmo & his sister Amaia, minimal intervention is practised and the wine is certified organic.

 

Some of the grapes included in the blend are Garnacha Blanca, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay – but no Viura, which is the mainstay of most white Riojas. The result is a complex, multi-faceted wine with beautiful aromas and flavours of ripe pears, stone fruits, cream, ginger and camomile. The wine is full-bodied especially as this was a warm vintage and texture is creamy and well rounded. It lingers on the taste buds long after it has been swallowed. This wine is a real treat, one to savour!

How to enjoy this wine

Recommended for drinking with oysters, other shellfish and fish generally.  It also matches well with herb-based dishes, roast chicken, creamy sauces, tagines, sweet potatoes, parsnips, butternut squash and creamy cheeses. But best of all is savouring a glass on its own!

 

Serve at: 10 – 12°C

Producer's Notes

“The nose is very complex, showing notes of butter, walnuts, quince, ginger, cedar and very ripe pears. It shows a lot of character on the palate with a nervous acidity balanced by its deep concentration and creamy, full body. The finish is very elegant and long.”

96 points – RobertParker.com – Aug 2021
“The exceptional 2020 Blanco is from vines between 605 and 805 meters above sea level that were harvested over multiple passes after one episode of hail. This vintage had a slow fermentation, and it feels like a year of finesse and elegance. The wine has fluidity, elegance but also intensity, depth and very pure flavors, with a very saline finish, super tasty. This could very well be the finest vintage for the white… It’s not a shy wine, with 14.2% alcohol and a low pH of 3.3, denoting very good freshness.”
