El Coto de Rioja Blanco 2021
Clean and bright, with a pale-yellow color with green hues. In the nose the wine delivers beautiful intensity, with flavors of tropical fruit and citrus. In the mouth, a powerful fresh attack gives way to a round texture balanced with a good acidity, releasing the fruit aromas. A very well-balanced wine.
El Coto de Rioja, located in Oyon, was founded in 1970 by a group of winemakers committed to creating a new type of Rioja. Its first bottling was released in 1975. Today, El Coto is the leading brand in Spain and among the top-selling Spanish wines in Europe. Located in La Rioja Alta's village of Cenicero, near the east bank of the Najerilla River (a tributary of the Ebro), is 1,235 acres of estate vineyards. Facing northwest, vineyard soils are mostly ferric clay, sand, and limestone, which contribute structure, power, and elegant minerality, respectively, to the wines. The recently incorporated Los Almendros estate, shared with Baron de Ley, adds an additional 741 acres of vineyards to the impressive estate holdings.
