Rioja white. But from a grape varietal that became extinct. It's a white rhino and a unicorn of a wine. It's got this longer finish. Beautiful acid, fleshy body nice like a Chenin blanc.

Stony taste with lots of minerality. Citrus flavor. Literally the only maturana Blanca in the world, grown on two hectares owned by ljalba. A very obscure wine you can geek out on!

Unrefined sweetness. Gummy bears and artificial sweetener.
