Tasting Notes

Medievo Tempranillo Blanco is an aromatic wine with an attractive lightly floral nose with pears and nectarines and just a hint of lychees and limes. These aromas follow through to refreshing flavours of pears, nectarines, white peach and nuances of limes and tropical fruit. Medievo Tempranillo Blanco has an excellent balance of fruit and acidity, with a nice mouthfeel, some complexity and very good length. It will make a perfect, refreshing aperitif.

Grapes

Made from Tempranillo Blanco which is a relative newcomer to the world of vines. It was discovered in a Tempranillo (red grape) vineyard in Rioja in the late 1980s. This is quite a rare occurence but it has happened with other grapes like Garnacha and Garnacha Blanco.

It was officially recognised by the Consejo Regulador of Rioja in 2007. Vine growers are still learning about this grape and the types of wines it can produce. We have tasted many Tempranillo Blancos and were delighted to find this excellent example produced by Medievo.

About the Bodega

Established in 2001, Bodegas del Medievo is an exciting, innovative winery in Aldeanueva de Ebro 50km South of Logrono, just in Rioja Oriental. The Rioja Oriental has more of a mediterranean climate, as compared with Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, but as the vineyards of Bodegas Medievo are situated at 600 metres the climate is favourable for a range of grapes from Tempranillo to Graciano, as well as Garnacha which is widely grown in Rioja Oriental.

The vineyards are situated on the fringes of Mount Yerga, 600 metres above sea level which provides optimal conditions for the cultivation of healthy grapes. Joseba and Santiago, viticulturist and winemaker respectively set up this Bodega to produced high quality wines that offer great value. The vineyards have been family run for generations. From their young wines like this Medievo Tempranillo Blanco through to Tuerce Botas Graciano Crianza, their wines have the hallmark of quality throughout.

Food match: A perfect aperitif, it is also good with Fish and Shellfish; it will also partner many veggie dishes, Thai curries and cheeses
