K&L Notes

Sandra Bravo, vigneron, member of the "Rioja n' Roll" group of young winemakers in Rioja, and a real up-and-coming talent, did not grow up in a vine growing or winemaking family. She studied, learned on the job, and when an opportunity arose to purchase a small bodega in Rioja Alavesa, she went for it. This white is produced from vines interspersed amongst the Tempranillo vines in a few of her Rioja Alavesa parcels. It is brisk and mineral, with a cool vintage Chablis quality to it. Highly recommended.

    I recently tried this engaging wine in a line up of white Riojas we currently have in the store and I found the Sierra de Tolono Blanco to be the most focused and bright in the line up. With 90% of the Viura fermented in stainless steel and only 10% in French oak, the wine maintained a beautiful medium bodied texture that balanced the high acidity. It boasted with notes of yellow citrus, white tropical fruits, and a bit of golden apple. It was intreguing from beginning to end- a great step into the enticing world of Rioja Blanco!
