2017 Rioja Alavesa Blanco (Ostatu, Bodegas)
Ostatu, Alavesa Blanco, Rioja, Spain, 201785% Viura, 15% Malvasia LEMON & ANJOU PEAR, FLORAL, LUSH BUT SUBTLE & DRY Ostatu's unoaked white Rioja comes to us courtesy of 60-70 year Viura vines with just a twist of Malvasia (15%) added to intensify the exotic perfume. An extra special treat, this cuvée was originally the estate's family wine in Spain and never intended for export, but local wine importer André Tamers kept after the producers until they allowed a bit of it to be brought to his markets. Great floral aromas precede tangy Anjou pear and lemon-like flavors. The finish is very clean and hyper-refreshing. Way cooool. Serving Suggestion: Delicate fish baked in olive oil, thyme, oregano & garlic. Salty ham w/ chickpeas, arugula, & cherry tomatoes.
