Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92
The 2015 Allende Blanco, mostly Viura with some Malvasa Riojana (Alarije), fermented with indigenous yeasts in new French oak barrels, where it aged with the lees and btonnage twice per week for seven months and a further seven months without the lees after it was racked. It has a classical oaked white Rioja nose, with some nutty undertones, spice, dried flowers and a hint of petrol. The palate has focused, intense flavors, and the oak is nicely integrated. 36,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2017.-RP

Elegant and subtle, with notes of grapefruit, peach and yellow plum. Blend: 95% Viura, 5% Malvasia-Winemaker Notes

Founded in 1986 by Miguel ngel de Gregorio in the hillside town of Briones, Finca Allende is located in an ancient 17th century manor, set in a medieval town square within the heart of Rioja Alta. Roughly translated as further, Allendes philosophy is to go further towards creating the perfect Rioja. The majority of vines are plowed with mules, grapes are hand-harvested, triple-selected and manually punched-down, before undergoing extensive underground aging in both barrel and bottle. Known for producing round wines with great body and structure, each bottle is hand-crafted by and contains the signature of Miguel ngel de Gregorio. Considered to be Spains first terroirist, Miguel ngels sincere dedication to natural farming and preserving the integrity of Rioja Alta, are why he is one of the regions most celebrated winemakers and a mastermind when it comes to making world class estate-grown wines.-Winery Notes
