There is no question that the reds of the Rioja region are Spain’s most illustrious wines. The much-admired Tempranillo-based blends are wood burnished and bottle-aged, but the little known fact is that Rioja also makes terrific whites and Rosés in the same tradition. Finca Alto Cantabria from Conde de Valdemar is a blend that features the remarkable Viura grape. Also known as Macabeo, vines have to be low-cropped for great wines like this, so its flavours can stand up to oak barrel fermentation and ageing. High-sited vineyards rooted in limestone provide the fruit for this ultra-classic white Rioja, imbuing it with excellent structure and a mineral-laced finish. It has an appealing (and completely typical) Riojan nose of herbs, flowers, and stony earth. Satisfyingly mouth-filling without being heavy, its balance between ripe fruit, crisp acidity, and a touch of buttery oak makes it a natural food wine for winter fare like roast chicken (basted with garlicky-thyme butter, of course), or if you can get your hands on some proper Iberian ham, you’ll be drinking it as the Spanish would.
