This citrus-scented Barón de Barbón carries the flag for cutting edge, contemporary white Riojas. It’s the sibling wine to our bestselling red Rioja, both made by the Murúa family. Terrific value, it dazzles with its racy fresh, lime zipped flavours.
"A beautiful wine with a nice, clean, fresh taste and a hint of lemon. Very refreshing"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
The talent behind this very contemporary white Rioja is Javier Murúa, a real mover and shaker in the region. His father, Julián, owns Bodegas Muriel in the Rioja Alavesa, a winery Julián’s parents established in 1926, and which is the regular recipient of awards. The red Barón de Barbón is always a top seller on our list, adored for its generous, ripe, silky fruit and value for money, and this ravishing white is in the same class – no doubt why our customers order it more often than any other blanco. It’s made using the indigenous Viura grape, and fermented at a cool temperature in stainless steel to capture every single flicker of freshness. You’ll find it delicious served chilled with tapas, barbecued chicken or spicy prawns with noodles.
