Bodega Classica is part of Vintae, a group of six wineries across different regions of Spain. Started in 1999 by Riojan entrepreneur José Miguel Arambarri Terrero, he first established Bodega Castillo de Maetierra, the only exclusively white wine producer in Rioja, specialising in Muscat which had long been forgotten in the region. The success of the wines has resulted in the creation of a new "Protected Geographical Indication" for white wines in the Community of La Rioja called Valles de Sadacia. This zesty white Rioja is a blend of Viura and Malvasia grapes. It is crisp and dry with some depth and complexity. Ideal to accompany richer tapas dishes.
A delicate lemon-yellow in the glass. Aromas of cut grass and peaches with a note of lemongrass. On the palate, crisp and refreshing with notes of citrus and vanilla. The acidity is pronounced and the finish short making this an easy drinking summer glugger. Pairs very well with tempura asparagus with garlic aioli, squid cooked in its own ink or estocaficada, Rioja's version of Bouillabaisse.
