Full-bodied whites - MALVASIA, Eguren Ugarte. Rioja, Spain

2018 MALVASIA, Eguren Ugarte. Rioja, Spain

Bin: 194
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Rioja in northern Spain, needing no introduction. 60% of all Spanish wine sold in the UK.
But this of course is a less common, white example. And rather than being dominated by the (normal) Viura grape it's Malvasia - a variety that in our opinion makes for a more textured, perfumed and interesting style.
Grape Variety: 100 year old Malvasia vines; given a 4 month maturation in oak; but it shows little vanilla or butter, this is a fresh, modern style of white Rioja.
Producer: A family-owned winery founded in 1957, but with a history in the area back to the 19th century, owning 120 hectares in Rioja Alavesa, based just outside the medieval hill town of Laguardia.
