Viña Ijalba 2022 Maturana Blanca

This was once the only Maturana Blanca in the world, grown on two hectares owned by Ijalba. But, as with the once similarly-unique Graciano, it has spawned imitators. And with good reason! It is actually the variety with the oldest known written citation in Rioja, dating from 1622. Faintly golden, opulently peachy on the nose, and then surprisingly stony and long on the palate, this is quite a character, that effortlessly withstands its classic burgundian treatment. As singular and obscure a wine as can be imagined!
