Although more famous for its acclaimed and ubiquitous red wines, Rioja also produces some impressive white wines. Garnacha Blanca is the most common white grape in the region and Bagordi have skilfully blended theirs in equal measure with Sauvignon Blanc to create a typically upbeat and zesty white Rioja that’s clean and refreshing. Light straw gold in colour, the nose is appealing with citrus and floral hints. On the palate there’s a successful marriage of the acidity and directness of one variety and the depth of flavour and softness of the other. There are pineapple and grapefruit hints and above all a sense of vitality and freshness. Great to pair with dishes featuring green vegetables like asparagus, courgettes, fresh peas, green beans or a herby risotto.
