REGION: Rioja, Spain
VARIETIES: Viura, Chardonnay
White Rioja seems to be enjoying something of a renewed interest recently, particularly amongst those looking for a great value alternative to Burgundy. And certainly, the styles, production method and even grape varieties are similar. Bodegas Manzanos combines the traditions of five generations of winemaking with the youthful flair of the young team paving the way today - brothers, Victor and David Fernández de Manzanos. This, their Fermentado en Barrica white (barrel-fermented) does all you could hope for at a wonderful price.
