Martinez-Lacuesta Rioja Blanco Barrica
The latest release of Martinez Lacuesta's delicious white Rioja; sensitively judged oak gives this texture and length. It will work excellently with roasted pork chops, chicken, classic rice dishes and meaty fish. Great value.
This is a lightly oaked white Rioja. 100% Viura grapes, aged 3 months in 10% Acacia wood, 35% French Allier oak and 55% Missouri American oak. Lemony fresh nose with a hint of smoky oak. Young and fresh, it's got good, weight, attractive citrus and peach fruit, a soft round almost creamy texture with ripe pear, nuts and hints of spice on a long finish. Will only get better too.
