Navarius Tempranillo Blanco 2022, Rioja

Tempranillo Blanco from Spain
Review Date : 22-Feb-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow gold with a tinge of green. The nose is full and elegant with aromas of stonefruit, red apple, and floral and subtle spice notes. Medium-bodied, aromas of nectarine, peach and red apple entwined with white floral, unfolding chalky minerals and delicate spice. The fruit is bright and supported by crisp acidity; a touch of creaminess contrasts chalky minerals and lends an elegant, lengthy finish. This Tempranillo Blanco is textural and balanced with bright fruit, fresh acidity and mineral layers. Match with grilled prawns and poultry over the next 3-5 years. 95% Tempranillo Blanco, 5% Malvasia Riojana, fermented in stainless steel to 13% al, aged 4 months on fine lees and French oak barrels with lees stirred. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $27.99
