Vinsacro Blanco Rioja
Bodegas Escudero
Spain - La Rioja - Rioja

The grapes for Vinsacro Blanco come from vineyards located in Grávalos, on the southern sloping side of Mount Yerga, at the foothills of the "Cordillera Iberica." Vineyards are at an altitude of 700-800 meters. 

Bright straw yel­low col­or. Aromas are intense and elegant, with flo­ral and fruity notes. Bal­sam­ic and spicy aromas with toasty notes derive from the light ag­ing in oak and bot­tle mat­u­ra­tion. Very cool and struc­tured; unusually powerful for a white wine - this one is full of suprises. 

Wine Type
60% Chardonnay, 40% Viura
Agricultural Practices
Manual harvest. Aged on the lees in American oak barrels (225L with medium toast) for 7 months with frequent battonage.

Roast lamb, grilled veg­eta­bles.

vinous logo"(aged for seven months in new and used French oak barrels) Bright yellow. Pear nectar, Meyer lemon and smoky minerals on the nose, along with hints of jasmine, fennel and vanilla that build slowly in the background. Supple, focused and nicely concentrated, offering ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are complemented by sweet butter and toasty lees accents. The floral note repeats on a long, smooth finish that's energized by a jolt of zesty acidity. - Josh Raynolds"
