Horizonte de Exopto Rioja Blanco 2016

25.00

Description

Intense bouquet with lactic hints as well as very ripe fruit (peaches, pears, apricots) and certain spices (cinnamon, anis). On the palate the wine has a wonderfully balanced acidity, alcoholic strength and complexity with rich, perfumed and intricate flavours that gain intensity in the mouth.

Only 2,000 bottles of this powerful white were produced. The blend consists of 70% Viura, 15% Malvasia and 15% Garnacha Blanca. Fermentation takes place in large French oak barrels before resting on its lees for 12 months before bottling.

Enjoy with oven-baked fish (turbot, sole, salmon), as well as lobster and poultry, or even Sushi.

Producer: Bodegas Exopto

Bodegas Exopto (Exopto from the Latin - to desire) was founded in 2003 by Bordeaux expat Tom Puyaubert, who had originally moved to Spain in his capacity as salesman for famous French cooperage (barrel maker) Saury. In fact Tom continues to work selling oak barrels in parallel with his ambitious project of crafting high-end Rioja.His estate comprises 10 hectares that are subdivided into 15 'micro parcels'. Depending on the plot, the vines (which are usually 'en vaso', or bush-trained) cultivated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria at over 500 metres altitude, might be anywhere from 30 to 90 years old.
