Professional Wine Reviews for Benjamin Romeo Que Bonito Cacareaba Blanco 2014

Rated 95 by James Suckling
This is a fantastic white with cream, sliced peaches, lemons and pineapples. Full body, beautiful precision and length. Transparent wood. Serious and structured. A blend of garnacha blanca, viura and malvasia. This is barrel fermented and aged nine months in new French wood. Drink or hold. (Suckling)
Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The white 2014 Qué Bonito Cacareaba is a blend of Garnacha Blanca, Malvasía and Viura from no less than 18 vineyards planted with old vines on poor limestone and clay soils, mostly in San Vicente (there is one in Briones). The grapes fermented in new French oak barrique with indigenous yeasts, where the wine matured for eight months. These barrels are later used for the white Predicador. It's clean, elegant and a little lighter than 2013 usually is for whites. It's serious and a little oaky at this time, with the austerity of the chalky soils. There is a mixture of flowers, spices and herbs, chamomile and a smoky hint. There is a good combination between power and elegance. It develops further nuances with time in the glass, orange peel, beeswax, licorice and fennel. It should age nicely. 6,800 bottles produced.

Winery Benjamin Romeo

Region: La Rioja

La Rioja is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown of Spain's wine regions, and the deliciously drinkable, complex and fascinating single red wines and blended wines of this special region have gone down in history as some of the finest on earth. La Rioja is located in the north of Spain, close to the Atlantic coast, but shielded from the cold and wet weather by the expansive Cantabrian mountains. As such, the climatic conditions in La Rioja are ideal for ripening the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes used in the production of the fine red wines the region is famous for. Wineries in La Rioja take great pride in their heritage and traditions, and the winemakers of the region employ a range of time honored techniques alongside more modern methods to make the most of their superb crops each year.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
