The key question about the modern white Riojas is: do they last, and improve? The jury is out – it depends on the vineyard and winemaker. So is this a 'drinker' or a 'keeper'? It's definitely a keeper. Tasting back through the vintages proves that this is a wine that has the capacity to become more complex and interesting with the years as the oak integrates with the fruit. Remírez de Ganuza is well-known for its reds, but don't miss their white Rioja – worth tracking down.
