Bhilar 2018 Rioja BlancoIn Fine Spirits
Bodegas Bhilar is a boutique winery located in Elvillar, Rioja Alavesa, run by husband and wife team, David Sampedro and Melanie Hickman. Their goal is to make terroir-driven wines with soul, respect the land, and to work only with indigenous grapes. Bhilar Blanco presents a nose that is fresh and aromatic with aromas of almond skins and citrus peel. The wine is weighty and complex in the mouth; structured yet surprisingly fresh with good acid which leads into a fresh finish. Pair with chicken or turkey.
