Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Soft and gentle nose showcasing grapefruit, white blossom, and mineral aromas. Integrated acidity, texture from aging on lees, and dry with medium body. Expect citrus pith and tropical fruits on the palate. Mouthwatering through the finish. An interesting and unique wine. Tempranillo Blanco is a white mutation of Tempranillo first discovered in 1988, evaluated, stabilized, and planted, and first bottled in 2005. Now a permitted white variety in Rioja, made into varietal wine like this and available for blending with Viura. Try this offering with crab, lobster, and most seafood dishes.
An interesting Tempranillo Blanco from the Rioja Wine Region. Pg Zaumau 2017 is produced from 100% organically grown Tempranillo Blanco from 10-year-old vines planted in high altitude vineyards with sandy and limestone soils. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged on the lees for five months. Look for white florals and tropical fruit aromas on the nose with lemon pie and ripe orchard fruit flavours on the palate. Good acidity for food like fish tacos and crab cakes, but great chilled as an aperitif as well. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
