Benjamín Romeo Predicador Rioja Blanco 2019
94 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team
A wine composed of 49% Viura, 40% Garnacha Blanca and 11% Malvasia. The grapes are sourced from ten different plots within San Vicente and Briones in Rioja Alta, which on average yield less than 1.5 kg per vine:. The maceration lasts three days, and after barrel fermentation the wine is aged for eight months in 30% new and 70% conditioned barrels.
"The only white I tasted this time, the Predicador Blanco is a blend of Garnacha Blanca with some Malvasía and Viura that was barrel fermented in French oak with indigenous yeasts and matured there for ten months. It's perfumed and elegant, with some complexity for its youth. The oak is nicely integrated, and it's ripe without excess, mixing white and yellow fruit. It manages to keep its poise and harmony, coming through as fresh in a warm vintage like 2017. 11,000 bottles produced."
