Maturana Blanca Rioja 2016
Clípeo 100% Maturana Blanca 2016 is the chance to taste one of Spain’s rarest grape varieties.
Maturana Blanca produces big, complex white Rioja. However, its susceptibility to rot and the rising popularity of Verdejo and Viura have led to a big decline in its plantings. This one comes from a rare organic plot next to the river in the Alto Valle del Najerilla. Clípeo 100% Maturana Blanca 2016 is fermented in oak barrels using natural yeasts, and left mature there for up to four months. Only around 800-1,500 bottles are made each year, depending on the harvest, so opportunities to secure a bottle don’t come around very often.
Biscuity and woody, with summery notes of fennel and herbs, combined with stone fruit and a pinch of sea salt. This is a cracker to take to a wine tasting, or one to either sip on its own, revelling in its rarity, or with substantial meaty dishes.
