Nestares Equizabal A Veredas Blanco 2018
50% Chardonnay, 50% Sauvignon Blanc
Jose Maria Nestares
Intense aromatic profile, with citrus fruits giving way to tropical, then smoky notes from some barrel ageing. It has a real freshness on the palate, which sinks in to the fruity, savoury palate beautifully, lifting on the finish, carrying appetising smoky, mineral flavours that linger tantalisingly long after. Gorgeous new take on white Rioja.
Vineyards are located 650m above sea level, and total 3 hectares. Average yields are low - just 7 tonnes/hectare, equating to 4,000 bottles.
Fermentation takes place in a mixture of French and American oak Barriques with regular battonage throughout its maturation.
The wine is left in cask for 8 months - 50% in American oak, and 50% in French. 12 months of bottle ageing follows before release.
Galilea in the Valle de Ocon, Rioja Oriental (formerly Rioja Baja), was historically very difficult to access so remained relatively isolated from the growing fame and reputation of other areas of the Rioja wine region. It is here that you'll find Nestares Eguizábal, a family-owned winery headed by founder Jose Maria Nestares. The small organic vineyards were planted in 1983 on a plateau between Valle de Ocón and Valle de Jubera at 520-650 metres above sea level, and the winemaking is in the hands of two young oenologists, Alberto Pedrajo and Javier Achutegui. They strive to make distinctive, memorable Rioja wines that reflect their historic provenance and the family's traditions.
