Details
The Remelluri Blanco comes from the brilliant Telmo Rodriguez and sommeliers throughout the wine drinking world clamor for extra every year when the allocations are released. A blend of 9 different grapes, this ages in concrete and then in barrels of various sizes. If you want to impress your know it all wine friend, this is the wine to bring.

"This is a fantastic white with tightness and freshness and such bright acidity. Sliced apple, pear, pineapple and lilac. Full-bodied yet tight and so fresh, Goes on for minutes. Great length. Precise and transparent. From organically grown grapes. Want to drink it now, but its one of the cellar." 98 points James Suckling

"The 2018 Blanco has to be the finest white from Remelluri so far. It's powerful, characterful and elegant, with ripeness and concentration coupled with very good freshness. This unusual white was produced with a melange of grapes, trying to erase the varietal profile; it fermented with indigenous yeasts in tank and small oak vats and matured in used barriques, foudres and concrete. It has Mediterranean notes of hay and straw, but it's powerful and serious, more like an austere Hermitage with a super-chalky palate and a very tasty, almost salty finish. It has great finesse, with power and the freshness from the high-altitude vineyards and the cool year. 13,100 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020." 95 points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
