jeb dunnuck logo 250"A blend of 85% Viura and 15% Malvasia, the 2016 Rioja Barrel Fermented Blanco was, you guessed it, fermented and aged in barrel, all of which were new. It has a rock star nose of lime, white flowers, and honeyed, flinty minerality as well as a medium-bodied, richly textured, balanced style on the palate. The new oak is hardly noticeable, and the wine stays clean and balanced. This is one seriously delicious drink."

vinous logo"(all new French oak) Limpid yellow-gold. An expansive bouquet evokes fresh melon, Meyer lemon, peach nectar and buttered toast, with a smoky mineral quality emerging as the wine opens up. Juicy and energetic, offering densely packed orchard and citrus fruit and sweet butter flavors and a subtle touch of vanilla. Shows impressive energy and mineral lift on the penetrating, highly persistent finish, which features a sexy floral quality and a mineral flourish.- Josh Raynolds"

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"

vinous logo"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"

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"
