Bodegas Martinez La Orden A A Blanco Rioja 2016
The A A White Rioja from Bodegas Martinez is a superb example of white Rioja. Made with mostly Viura grapes and aged in new oak casks and stainless steel the wine takes on an amazing array of flavours and textures. The tripical fruit characteristics such as passion fruit and pineapple ensure this wine is delightful with most forms of shellfish and sea food. We tried some A A Blanco Rioja recently with Seafood Paella and it was delicious.
