ONTANON TEMPRANILLO BLANCO
In 1988, a Rioja winemaker found a bunch of white grapes growing amongst the Tempranillo vines in his Murillo de Rio Leza estate in Rioja Baja. After several years of investigation, the Consejo Regulador of Rioja accepted that this was a natural mutation of the usually red Tempranillo grape and approved it as a variety to be grown DOCa Rioja.
Delicate citrus and stone fruit aromas, white flower and a hint of orange blossom. The palate has texture, minerality and balance with stone fruit and citrus characters, crisp acidity and an elegant, lengthy finish.
