2013 Remelluri Blanco

Superb Spanish White
March 1, 2017

 

Peter writes,

We now have our allocation of the 2013 Remelluri Blanco. This is one of the very best and certainly most sought after white wines produced in Spain. Telmo Rodriguez runs the place and in addition to the great red Riojas produced here, this white wine holds a very special place for Telmo. The wine is a blend of nine grape varieties grown in marl and sandstone soil at very high altitude. It is Telmo’s intention for this wine to perfectly express the terroir here and as a result will not tell you the varieties used.The farm is organic, the grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation and the wine is aged in a combination of used oak and cement for 18 months.This will age well for 10 to 15 years. There are sommeliers on both sides of the Atlantic that are upset that we get any of this wine at all.

2013 Remelluri Blanco: Bright straw. Bright intense yellow fruit with a light oak background. Flowers, orange peel, pear and spices with salty, chalky minerality. All framed by a Meurault like creamy texture. Excellent to Superb 90/bottle 459/six pack
