Ontanon Tempranillo Blanco - Tropical fruit aromas with hints of pineapple and white flower. The palate has texture and balance with ripe fruit characters, crisp acidity and a lengthy finish.

In 1988 a Rioja winemaker found a bunch of white grapes growing amongst the Tempranillo vines in his Murillo de Rio Leza estate in Rioja Baja. After several years investigation, the Consejo Regulador of Rioja accepted that this was a natural mutation of the usually red Tempranillo grape and approved it as a variety to be grown DOCa Rioja. It is thought that just one generation separates the white and red versions of the grape - similar to white mutations of both Pinot Noir and Garnacha. Only a handful of growers in Rioja have Tempranillo Blanco vines. Bodegas Ontañón saw the potential of this grape and planted 15 ha. In 2016 they released the very first vintage of Tempranillo Blanco.
