Characteristics of Izadi Blanco

Izadi Blanco is a young white wine produced by Bodegas Izadi in the Rioja Alavesa area (D.O.Ca. Rioja) from a coupage of the Viura, Malvasía, Garnacha Blanca, Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Blanca and Turruntés native white varieties.

The Artevino group owns four well-differentiated wineries and began making wine in 1987 in the town of Villabuena de Álava (Rioja Alavesa) at Bodegas Izadi. Their triangular logo represents a map of the three villages that are home to the 178 hectares of vineyards they make their wines with. The winery is a new building with a striking design that includes a 50-metre drop across 5 different levels to make use of gravity. This results in wines that stand out for representing the typicity of the area.

Izadi Blanco comes from vines with an average age of 45 years old, planted on poor clay-limestone soils at about 450-550 metres above sea level. These are old vines grown according to the principles of integrated viticulture and that produce very small but high quality berries through a limited yield. When the grape reaches optimum ripeness, it is harvested by hand.

In the winery, the Izadi Blanco grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. Then, most of the resulting must is placed in stainless steel tanks and the rest into new barrels to undergo alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature. Finally, it is filtered and clarified for bottling.

Izadi Blanco is a young, fresh and aromatic white wine made from old strains of native white varieties from the D.O.Ca. Rioja. Great gastronomic typicity.

Tasting notes Izadi Blanco

Izadi Blanco is an aromatic white wine with a pale yellow colour with green tones. It has aromas of fresh white fruits and citrus fruits. On the palate it is fresh with a well-balanced acidity and a pleasant sweetness.
This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
