The 2018 Rioja Blanco from Alegre Valgañón is aging beautifully and is now starting to really open up on both the nose and palate. Bright yellow. Fresh tangerine, dried pear and white peach on the fragrant nose, with a spicy element emerging slowly. Juicy and silky in texture, offering fresh orchard and citrus fruit flavours that tighten up slowly on the back half. Closes with strong, stony persistence and very good lift, leaving an appealing floral note behind.
