2012 Finca La Garriga, Castillo Perelada, Emporda, Empordà

( €17.50, 13.5% )

A varietal Cariñena Blanca fermented in acacia barrels (no less), this is a rich and ambitious wine made in a traditional, almost white Rioja style. Nutty and toasty, with concentrated, oxidative flavours of honey and spice sustained by acidity.
