description
Bodega Ostatu sits just beneath the stunning sheer cliffs of the Sierra de Cantabria where the Rioja meets the Basque Country in a region known as the Rioja Alavesa. This comarca is at a much higher elevation and therefore a colder climate than the rest of Rioja making it the perfect place to ditch the Tempranillo and Garnacha and grow a whistle clean white wine. This blend of Viura and Malvasia has great acidity and enough body to carry the day. The wine is deliciously aromatic as well and herbaceous with notes of melon and lime. Ostatu Blanco is forward and unique. This wine is light and refreshing and yet reflects enough richness to complete what is a fantastic white.  The family-run operation grows all of their grapes organically and farms sustainably. Their care and attention shows in the wine. Furthermore, it’s an example of a wine that proves one of our guiding principles, that you can drink wine made the right way without breaking the bank. -JWK
