Akemi, Viura Blanco, Rioja, Felix Jimenez

£16.50

Made from 100% Viura grapes taken from 35-year-old vines in a single vineyard plot belonging to the winery. The wine is aged in mostly 2nd use American oak before bottling, imparting a vanilla flavour into the wine. It’s round, creamy and fleshy but still with a lively acidity. This is no vanilla bomb. The tropical and stone fruit come first followed by the signature texture and feel.

 The wine was made specifically to match with the Japanese fusion cuisine that has earned Felix a Michelin star at his restaurant Kiro in the capital of Rioja, Logroño. The name Akemi means “Beautiful Dawn”.

It is the only wine served in his Michelin star restaurant, which speaks volumes for the quality of it.
