If you're disillusioned with Spanish white wine, think again. This beauty is assertive and delicious, oozing bags of fresh, crisply intense character. White peach, green apples and fennel characters abound, thanks to the wonderful local Macabeo grape. It finishes with a flourish of pithy citrus and almond - the 'serious' edge that we talked about - and screams out for expertly-prepared fish dishes of all kinds. Try now.
Bodegas Castell del Remei was designed and built in 1780 with the purpose to make aged wines.
The drinking experience: On approach, this unique creation of theirs appears pale yellow with metallic highlights. There is a varietal note of fig leaves followed by floral aromas and hints of fennel, aniseed and dill, with a touch of citrus. That's the beautiful Macabeo grape. Smooth and balanced on the palate, with a subtle bitterness that adds length. Slightly acidic lingering finish, with notes of under-ripe fruit.
For those who have not tried white Rioja (why not?!) - you are in for a treat! Hand-crafted and with a combination of flavour profiles that are simply genius, it's a wonder how this family-owned winery managed it!
Ulrich Langguth takes most of the magic of the Goldtropfchen vineyard site here, the most vaunted in the Piesporter area, and bottles it. You might say that he has bottled a little drop of gold, which is exactly what the name translates as.
