87 View from the Cellar The entry level 2021 Rioja Blanco “Viura” from Viña Otano is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, with the wine given a few months of aging on its fine lees prior to bottling. The wine comes in at a svelte 12.5 percent octane in this vintage and delivers a pretty nose of pear, white flowers, raw almond, a touch of grassiness and a nice base of white soil tones. On the palate the wine is bright, medium-full and nicely balanced, with pretty good depth at the core, but a bit of a clipped finish from its closure. This is a good example of Viura that would be a terrific value if sealed under some form of natural cork, as the underlying wine is very good, but the screwcap compromised the quality a touch. The nose is fresher on this bottle than the one I tasted last spring, but the wine is really rather short because of the screwcap. 2023-2026.
