2016 Remelluri Blanco (750ml)

Grenache Blanc from Rioja, Spain

2016 Remelluri Blanco

This is such a delicious white. Lots of fresh-pear and chalky notes, akin to Chablis. There’s white melon and gentle citrus nuances, too. The palate has a very attractive, chalky edge and succulent, fresh white peaches and pears abound. Mouthwatering and so fresh. Drink or hold.

2016 was a more challenging but remarkably cooler year, and the 2016 Blanco shows great freshness and contained ripeness, as the grapes ripened slowly and late. The wine had less alcohol and more acidity than the 2015 I tasted next to it. It has to be the finest vintage for the white produced here, still young and undeveloped. It's the palate where the wine is vibrant and lively, very fresh, harmonious and long. I tasted a 2007 next to this, and it showed perfect for drinking, so that can give you an idea of how this wine can develop for a good ten years after the harvest. 10,094 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018. It has to be one of the finest whites produced at Remelluri.
