Rioja Blanco is a bright golden yellow, white flowers and grape on the nose. Clean limes and crisp apple palate. Balanced elegant  finish.

Good clean acidity in the young wine.  These characteristics used to be masked by heavy oaked ageing; however this also functioned to cover problems in the wine making. This is characteristic of many of the old Spanish white wines. Grapes were harvested often a little late but still during the warm autumn months. Grapes began to ferment before they reached the winery which resulted in the brown-tinged oxidized whites of the past.

Thankfully new wine making and night time harvest ensures we get crunchy, vibrant white wine that make us feel that we are on a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean. Bodegas Perica Rioja Blanco has no oak.

 

 

From the Producer’s website:

A winery with its own character

In our land nothing describes better than a nickname.  In someone’s nickname is where you find the strength, character and sense of identity of each family member.  That’s why our warehouse could not be called other than “Perica”: the nickname that David Garcia has worn with pride for years.  It defines a way to view life based on the effort, attention to detail and respect and love of the wine heritage of this land. These are the virtues that have driven our winery during the last half century to go from being a hold of a local to an international company.

The quality of our soil and the perfect acclimatization of different grape varieties are the reasons why the Rioja Alta is regarded as an indisputable international level for all great wines lovers.  Our vineyards, all located in this part of the province, provide a unique raw material with which to create our award winning wines.
