2011 Amaren Rioja Barrel Fermented Blanco - 90 PTS - IWR

iwinereview"The 2011 Rioja Blanco Fermentado en Barrica is a blend of 85% Viura and 15% Malvasia. Fermented and aged in oak for eight months, it is subtly fragrant with orchard fruit, flowers, ginger and oak. It is soft on the attack and well balanced with fresh and savory fruit flavors on the palate, good acidity, and a very nice finish. Bodegas Amarén is owned by Bodegas Luis Cañas."

2011 Amaren Rioja Barrel Fermented Blanco - 91 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 91 pts"(85% viura and 15% malvasia): Light yellow. Waxy pear and orange pith aromas show very good power, with a bright mineral overlay adding energy. Incisive and uncompromisingly dry on the palate, showing broad but nicely focused flavors of citrus fruits, pear skin and honeysuckle. Finishes silky and quite long, leaving candied ginger and honey flavors in its wake."

2011 Amaren Rioja Barrel Fermented Blanco - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"The 2011 Barrel Fermented White is fermented and aged for eight months in oak barrels and has a clean and precise nose with notes of pear, chamomile, pollen and fennel. The medium to full-bodied palate shows ripe flavors but plenty of acidity, in a wine that is both big and delicate. It should age well. Drink 2014-2017. - Luis Gutierrez"

2013 Amaren Rioja Barrel Fermented Blanco - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Light, bright yellow. An expressive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh pear, tangerine, ginger and honeysuckle, with a minerally element adding vibrancy and lift. Sappy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering juicy, deeply concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors plus a hint of smokiness. Shows intense mineral and floral character on the clinging finish, which shows excellent tenacity. - Josh Raynolds"

2015 Amaren Rioja Barrel Fermented Blanco - 91 PTS - VINOUS

"Pale gold. Ripe pear and nectarine aromas show excellent clarity, picking up a lemon zest nuance and turning livelier with air. Silky, seamless and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated orchard and citrus fruit flavors given lift and spine by smoky minerality. A suave vanilla note comes up on the fragrant, extremely persistent finish, which leaves behind a juicy Meyer lemon note. - Josh Raynolds"

2016 Amaren Rioja Barrel Fermented Blanco - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The barrel-fermented 2016 Blanco Fermentado en Barrica is a classical blend of Viura with 15% Malvasía Riojana, aged with intense work with the lees for ten months. It has plenty of character and is a bit leesy, with a reductive personality. It combines some creamy notes and citrus freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with good freshness and a serious profile. 20,000 bottles were filled in September 2017.- Luis Gutiérrez"
