El Coto Rioja Blanco
A modern style of Rioja Blanco, this wine from one of the region's most exciting producers is pale lemon in colour and full of fresh, zesty fruit. On the nose, the wine is bursting with bright aromas of peaches, apples, citrus and tropical fruits. On the palate, it has lively acidity leading to a dry, crisp finish.
The Viura (89%) was mainly sourced from prime vineyard sites in Rioja Alta with limestone and clay soils. Meanwhile, the Verdejo (5%) and Sauvignon Blanc (6%) were sourced from high-altitude vineyards in Rioja Oriental. At over 840 metres above sea level, the grapes grown here benefit from warm days tempered by cool nights, allowing for an ideally paced slow ripening and resulting in grapes with the perfect balance between concentrated flavours and vibrant acidity.
