Rioja Blanco Bodegas Ostatu 2018/19
Bodegas Ostatu enjoys a prime position in Samaniego in the heart of the famous Alavesa Basque region. Small enough to be perfectly controlled, the 32 hectare estate is run by Mariasun Saenz and her family. They use a mix of modern methods and French oak barrels to exploit the full potential of Bodegas Ostatu's superb vineyards. The result is a collection of precise wines with a great sense of terroir and well preserved fruit.
Ablend of 85% Viura and 15% Malvasia from the highest parts of their oldest vineyards - the vines are between 30 and 80 years old. Pronounced aromas of nectarine, passion fruit and peach, give way to a fresh, lively palate with vibrant acidity and a spicy finish with hints of ginger and lemongrass.
Grapes: 85% Viura and 15% Malvasia
