Baron de Ley Blanco (750ml)
Baron de Ley is an estate winery located in Rioja Baja. It was established in 1985 and focuses on crafting high quality Rioja, Reserva and Gran Reserva wines.
The estate models its approach on the French concept of “chateau” where the grapes are sourced from the property’s own vineyards, rather than sourcing the grapes from contract growers, as can be typical of this area
The wine is a brilliant straw colour with a light nose and balanced fruit and acidity on the palate. Makes for a lovely aperitif or you can enjoy it with salads and fish.
While Rioja is know for its signature red wines, the region also makes delightfully fresh white wine styles as well. This white wine is made of 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia. It is bright and refreshing, offering great value. The grapes that make this Rioja Blanco are hand harvested from Rioja Alta, where the weather is more humid and fresher than that of Rioja Baja. This is a modern style of white Rioja where the grapes are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and there is no oak ageing.
This is a fresh white wine with elegant aromas and crisp acidity!
