Rioja: Viña Zearra Blanco 2021

Made to be drunk in its youth, this refreshing Rioja Blanco from Bodegas Petralanda with its eyecatching lime-green cork, label and capsule is made from Viura and 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 (Marqués de 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.
