Horizonte de Exopto Rioja Blanco 2015

Rioja, Spain

Buy Now:


Lavish, extravagant style (similar to a good white Châteauneuf) with swish aromas of stone fruit and ginger, supported ably by a creamy, full-throttle wash of apricot, cinnamon and crumbly apple pie. Round and complex, with a phenomenal finish. Decadence itself!

Pair with Dover sole with lime and ginger.

Crafted from an old-school 'field blend' (i.e. no one knows the exact composition) of Viura/Macabeo, Malvasia and Garnacha Blanco. Fermentation is in small, 225l French barriques and a year's ageing on fine lees imparts weight and texture. 
Bodegas Exopto (Latin: to desire) is a project founded in 2003 with the hope of recovering old bush vines cultivated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria, at over 500 metres altitude. Exopto is owned a run by Bordeaux expat Tom Puyaubert who works also as a salesman for the famous French cooperage (barrel makers) Saury.
