Bodegas Amaren, Blanco Doca Rioja, Spain, 2018
The grapes used to produce Amaren come from vines situated in the highest parts of vineyards where the soil is poor, thus obtaining small bunches of grapes which allow for perfect ripening with highly concentrated nuances. Upon entering the bodega, the bunches are cold macerated for six hours and then selected by hand before being de-stemmed so the individual berries can be sorted based on their weight. Only the most perfect grapes are allowed to pass to new 225-litre French oak barrels for fermentation.The wine is aged in new French oak barrels for an additional seven and a half months.
Straw-yellow in colour. High aromatic intensity, blended nuances of syrup fruit and cake. In the mouth it is smooth and rounded, with a high complexity of citric flavours (lemon peel), hints of pineapple, pipe tobacco and aromatic plants with a mineral and extremely elegant finish.
