Made to be drunk in its youth, this refreshing Rioja Blanco from Bodegas I. Petralanda with its eyecatching lime-green capsule is made from Tempranillo Blanco. It has a bouquet of daffodil pollen and citrus with lean mineral notes, a touch of Galia melon and a lovely 'vif' lemon verbena, lime peel and green orchard fruit finish.

Bodegas I. Petralanda (Viña Zearra)

In the early 1980s Iñake Petralanda Uria Zearra was finding it difficult to find a reliable source of good wines for his restaurant in Bilbao, so he decided to make his own. Establishing a winery in his wife's home town of Fuenmajor in the heart of Rioja Alta in 1983, he hasn't looked back and now runs a thriving bodega. The family divide their offerings under two labels: Viña Zearra for young and crianza wine and Marqués de Zearra for Reserva and Gran Reservas.
