Akemi Blanco

Rioja Baja, Spain
Officially the perfect wine for sushi. Fresh tropical fruit are married perfectly with vanilla, coconut and toasty flavours.
A joint project between Bodegas Ontañón and Riojan chef Felix Jimenez. The wine was made specifically to match with the Japanese and fusion cuisine that has earnt Felix a Michelin star. The name Akemi means "Beautiful Dawn" and you'll find it on the menu at Kiro in Logroño where Felix makes his name.
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.
Tasting Notes
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. Get the sushi out!
