Badiola Cabezadas Viura Rioja 2018
This is a wine to keep on hand when you’re not sure what a guest likes drinking. There’s a little weight, but good freshness, bright fruit but a mineral finish. The grape variety is Viura, the main grape of white Rioja.
Cabezadas is made by two Master of Wine, one of whom is Waiheke-based Sam Harrop, from 50 year old vines off Limestone soils vinified without the use of oak.
