Jequitibá Blanca – Vinous – 92 Points
Bright straw color. Ripe citrus and pit fruits, white flowers, chalky minerals and quinine on the highly perfumed nose. Concentrated and sharply focused, offering bitter lime pith and pear skin flavors and a hint of lemongrass. In a distinctly nervy style for white Rioja, with notes of anise and ginger building on the very long, energetic, mineral-driven finish. This wine was aged in large, used French oak foudres and barrels for ten months.
