91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The surprising white 2019 Blanco has all the white grapes you can imagine—Garnacha Blanca, Maturana Blanca, Torrontés, Viura, Malvasía and Tempranillo Blanco—fermented in different vessels, while in the past it contained less varieties and was all barrel fermented. I think this has increased the complexity and nuance and lowered the effect of the oak in the wine. It comes through as balsamic with even some minty notes and quite fresh and vibrant, clean and tasty, with a dry finish."

"Sliced-apple and lemon aromas with some peach. It’s medium-bodied with brightness and freshness. Drink now."
"Full bottle 1,285 g. Rioja Alavesa. Blend of Viura, Malvasia, Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Blanca, Garnacha Blanca and 'Turruntés' from a field blend with red wine grapes.
Pale straw colour. Complex, lightly spicy nose and then marked, but not excessive, acidity on the palate. Cool impression of grapefruit flavours with a little citrus-peel bite on the end. Really interesting wine! 16.5/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Viura, Malvasia, Garnacha Blanca, Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Blanca, Turruntes. Chalky clay limestone. A classic blend of indigenous varieties Viura, Malvasía, Garnacha Blanca, Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Blanca and Turruntés, the Rioja Blanco from Izadi comes from 50–60-year-old bush vines planted on chalky soils in Rioja Alavesa. After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, then fermented mainly in stainless steel tanks with a small percentage in new French oak barrels.
