Rioja Alta - Rioja - La Rioja - Spain

Professional Wine Reviews for Olivier Riviere Jequitiba White Blend 2014

Rated 92 by Stephen Tanzer
Bright straw color. Ripe citrus and pit fruits, white flowers, chalky minerals and quinine on the highly perfumed nose. Concentrated and sharply focused, offering bitter lime pith and pear skin flavors and a hint of lemongrass. In a distinctly nervy style for white Rioja, with notes of anise and ginger building on the very long, energetic, mineral-driven finish. This wine was aged in large, used French oak foudres and barrels for ten months.

Additional Information on Olivier Riviere Jequitiba White Blend 2014

Winery: Olivier Riviere

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

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
