|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
Here's another stunning white wine produced for us as a second label by a well-respected Rioja producer in Rioja Alavesa. Second labels are how I source top-quality wines (the very same wines as the first labels) at more reasonable prices.
Bodegas Casado Morales was established in 1925 and is the epitome of old-school Rioja tradition and quality. Brothers Joseba and Javier Casado Morales are the third generations to manage viticulture and winemaking.
Alonso López Blanco is sourced from two plots of 40-year-old vines located on the slopes of Mt. Laguardia and Lapuebla de Labarca. The vineyard's varying altitude of 430 to 580 meters and its unique location produce a climate with Mediterranean and Atlantic characteristics, perfect for their red and white Rioja.
After a quick swirl in your glass, aromas of tropical fruit, orchard fruit, and cut flowers lead to a bright and focused palate with mouthwatering zip and acidity. This classic Rioja white blend of Viura and Malvasia is fermented and aged without wood, keeping the wine vibrant and fresh and the Muscadet-like beam of minerals on the finish invites you to another sip.
Alonso Lopez Rioja Blanco is a perfect stand-in for your favorite Sauvignon Blanc and will pair like a charm with shellfish, white-fleshed fish, and poultry.
