Natalie's Score: 88/100

A bright and flavoursome Rioja white wine blend produced from Viura and Malvasía wine grapes. Easy to enjoy with its bright citrus, ripe stone fruit and dried fine herb flavours on the palate with a lingering soft orange finish. Very charming and to be enjoyed now.

Food pairings: seafood Alfredo, grilled chicken, poached salmon in white wine sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Serious value here. A classic Rioja blend of Viura and Malvasia, this fresh and zingy little wine over delivers on flavour. Tomato leaf and rosemary. Basil with a yellow plum note and mineral characters with a candied ginger finish. Simply lovely. Try it with an arugula salad with fresh figs, parma ham and basil @wrightwineblog
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A good value white Rioja, featuring the main white grapes of the region- Viura and Malvasia. Pale yellow, light-bodied, with lemon and peach aromas. Sip or serve with soft cheeses on artisanal breads.
Barón De Ley 2018 is a flavoursome Rioja white wine blend made from Viura and Malvasía with honey, melon, pear and sweet tropical fruit. Easy-going, balanced and creamy, fresh on the palate and a perfect pairing to grilled shellfish dishes. - Community Wine Reviews
