Wine tasting notes

Yellow golden color, absolute limpidity. Elegant and subtle nose with citrus fruits notes (grapefruit) and fruits with stone (peach and greengage plum), balsamic notes. Plush mouth feeling with a great lightness, enormous persistente aftertaste.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 93 pts

I had two vintages of some of the wines to taste side by side, which is always interesting to see the effect of the different years in the wines. The white 2016 Allende Blanco comes from a late harvested that started here the 10th of October, and the wine is fresh and balanced, with good acidity and good ripeness, keeping 13.5% alcohol. This is mostly Viura with 5% Malvasía Riojana (Alarije). It fermented with indigenous yeasts in new French oak barrels, where the wine matured for 14 months, the first seven with lees that were stirred twice per week. There is a lot of freshness here and a hint of classicism that could remind you of the whites from yesteryear. The palate is dry, with chalky minerality and a long and tasty finish. This is subtle and elegant and has nice balance; it should develop nicely in bottle. 36,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2018.
