Remelluri Rioja Blanco 2019
94 Points Wine Advocate
The white 2019 Blanco comes from a year that was marked by hail and frost in April and May, which resulted in a small crop that ripened early in a warm growing season. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in used barriques, foudres and 1,200-liter concrete eggs. The wine is powerful at 14.4% alcohol but has good freshness showcased by a pH of 3.21. This is a very serious and complex white, with spice and smoke, balanced and harmonious, combining power with elegance. It's a little more fluid, with more finesse and delicacy, despite the fact that they had low yields and the wine has natural concentration.
