Female Winemaker! Practicing Organic Old Vines Spanish White!

Located in Rioja Alavesa, Izadi aims to produce wines that express the character of the varieties indigenous to Rioja: Viura, Malvasía, Garnacha, Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo. They own 72 hectares and have access to another 108 hectares through long term contracts. All are located in a triangle, hence this familiar shape on their labels, formed by the towns of Villabuena, Samaniego and Ábalos. Farming is sustainable with many organic practices. The average age of the vines is greater than fifty years old and the soils are a mix of sandy clays and clay limestone.

This Rioja Blanco comes from 50–60 year old bush vines planted on chalky soils in Rioja Alavesa. Spending only 3 months in new French oak it, the brevity of its élevage marries a creamy texture with succulent fruit-driven freshness. Straw yellow in color with bright green tones. Well structured and excellent acidity. Eric Solomon Importers. Winemaker Ruth Rodriguez.
