2021 Flor de Primicia Blanco, Bodegas Casa Primicia, Rioja

£15.50 inc. VAT

Superb barrel fermented Chardonnay from the Rioja region. This is the second vintage to see the blend as 100% Chardonnay.

Situated in the stunning medieval town of Laguadia, Bodegas Casa Primicia is one of the oldest wineries in Spain, dating back to the 15th century. Once owned by the church it gets its name from when it received the first 20% of local grape growers’ crop as tax (primicia translates as first offering). By the 1970s the winery was in a poor state and was rescued by a local winemaker, Julian Madrid, whose family still own the property today. It is one of the most respected Bodegas in the Rioja Alavesa sub region.

From vines of almost 30 years old and soils of chalk and clay. It is aged in both American and French oak – the former for richness and the latter for elegance. It is blended together to create a well balanced, sophisticated white Rioja and can age for many years.

A delightful nose of peach and citrus with hints of banana. Beautifully balanced on the palate with a rich texture and fresh, citrusy acidity. Plenty of depth here and a serious glass of white wine.
