Finca Allende 2016, Rioja, Spain - 1.5l
Sometimes it's enjoyable to sample a white wine that makes a powerful statement. That's the case with Rioja Blanco, which offers a bold and dry taste whole remaining appealingly dry and refreshing. The nose is heavy on zesty citrus fruit and apple, while the palate blends these sensations with peach, vanilla, butter and coconut - with more than a pinch of oak. Rioja Blanco is not the most complex of white wines, but it's a fine choice for anybody seeking an eminently drinkable vintage for a summer's day, especially when paired with a range of light bites and appetising snacks.
