Vivanco Blanco

Peaches give way to Valencia oranges, then lemon, on the palate. This is crisp and energetic. Drink with fried oysters. Recommended. 89 points.

2010 Dominio de Berzal Blanco

A fairly traditional winery in Rioja produces this wine from 50-year-old viura vines, blended with a little malvasia. The nose is aromatic, as you’d expect. On the palate it is reminiscent of Chablis, but the flavors are more gentle and rounder, especially toward the end. A bit of steeliness re-awakens in a slightly citric finish; very dry. Recommended.
