Review

The Izadi Blanco is made from the star grape among Rioja white varieties, the Viura, and and different percentages of Riojan white grapes such as Malvasía, Garnacha Blanca, Maturana, Tempranillo or Torrontés. It ferments in new oak barrels and ages in them for three months in contact with its lees and frequently undergoes battonage.

Have no fear regarding the oak: at Izadi the oak never detracts from the fruit, but bestows complexity on it, and with this white you'll enjoy an extremely fresh wine, with a very clean nose and very elegant unctuosity, a glyceric mouthfeel and considerable freshness. It's an open, refined, most pleasant wine that has a touch of sweetness, no doubt supplied by the Malvasía, truly gastronomic, perfect for rice dishes come summer or autumn!

Consistently delicious house white

This modern white Rioja has become our house white in recent years. It has good clean flavours with decent acidity to refresh the palate. Not a wine for ageing, but for enjoying in its first couple of years.

Light fresh and fruity

Surprisingly good for the price. We discovered this wine on our trip to the Rioja region a few weeks ago. Travels well. We will certainly be buying this wine again and again

Wine from Bodegas Izadi

Bodegas Izadi

In 1987, Gonzalo Antón, in conjunction with a group of friends and business associates from Vitoria, decided to set up an innovative project in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa. Thus Bodegas Izadi came into being, situated in the triangle formed by the towns of Villabuena, Samaniego and Ábalos, the triangular motif on its labels, and with the clear objective of giving maximum expression to the fruit of that particular location, that natural environment so well-loved (Izadi mean...
