Country:  Spain
Region:  Rioja 

Grape varieties:  Tempranillo

About:  In 1988, a winegrower from Murillo de Rio Leza discovered that a Tempranillo grape strain produced bunches of red and white grapes at the same time. This spontaneous genetic mutation, very similar to what would be a case of albinism, gave rise to the Tempranillo Blanco variety. 

Our White Tempranillo has been harvested manually in our La Finca del Yergo vineyards adjacent to a beautiful pine forest. The soil has a sandy loam structure with a significant weight of calcareous component. This soil allows excellent water drainage and moderate production. Northwest orientation with crossing winds. Cool area to be on a plateau higher than Murillo.

After the harvest, and once in the winery, we separate the grape grains from the stalk and by means of natural gravity they enter the tank to macerate for a few hours and thus extract the acidity and structure of the tempranillo grape as well as more color and more aromas. It is then pressed (we separate the skins and the seeds) and we take the resulting liquid to 10,000-liter, double-jacketed, stainless steel tanks to begin to ferment at low temperature.

Subsequently, this wine is aged on its lees for eight months: half of the production in stainless steel tanks and the other half in 225-liter French oak barrels.

This technique gives the wine more volume, smoothness and a citric and floral varietal character. Then it is mixed / joined again and bottled to provide the final integration of the wine, its roundness and so that its aromatic persistence is perfect for its release on the market.

Tasting Notes:  This wine has a fabulous and very unique nose: it has a mixture of citrus (lemon leaf, orange blossom) and fruit (apricot and pineapple) notes with small touches of honey, mint, cedar and mineral. In addition, it inherits from the Tempranillo Tinto its great structure in the mouth and gives us a wine with volume and length. Try it now and check it out later. Given the acidity, structure and time in the barrel that this wine has, you will be able to enjoy it today, tomorrow, the day after, and in a couple of years. It will appease its freshness and increase its finesse. Our Paco García Tempranillo Blanco is a complex work of art that fascinates the palates of anyone who is willing to enjoy a good white wine.
