91 Points John Caro
In stock
A delicious Spanish white from old bush vines in the hills of Valdejalón in Spain's Aragon. The Bojito Blanco was made by a local MW using organically grown Garnacha Blanco (Grenache Blanc) and it captures the elegant but characterful fruit expression of this indigenous grape. Classy but easy-going, this Frontonio blanco is a no-brainer for European white lovers.

Garnacha Blanco (Grenache Blanc)

Its Origins

"Bodegas Frontonio is the personal project of young gun Fernando Mora MW, hailing from the Valdejalón appellation (technically an IGP, not a DO) of Aragón. These scintillating wines are some of the very best being made today east of Rioja and west of Conca, and they’re already garnering effusive praise from both Luis Gutiérrez and Jancis Robinson. Best of all, prices are very fair for the high quality—and the quality begins in the vineyard: Mora and his team own fifty hectares of beautiful old bushvines in rocky clay-limestone selected for high altitude and north-facing exposition to emphasize freshness. And although this is Garnacha country (Aragón, in fact, is thought to be the birthplace of Garnacha), the whites are every bit as fascinating and delicious as the red." Skurnik Wines

What The Critics Say

91/100 Decanter (2019 vintage)

"Light floral perfumes. Supple succulent palate with crisp acidity, warm melon, and passion fruit charm. Rich and mouth filling with an elegant mineral twist on the finish."

90/100 RobertParker.com, Luis Gutierrez (2017 vintage)

"The search for a more citrus and floral white has delivered the 2017 Botijo Blanco, a fresh, elegant and dry unoaked Garnacha Blanca from six hectares of dry farmed vines. It was bottled after three months in concrete, with lees contact. They wanted a Garnacha Blanca that was not heavy or oxidative, looking more for the citrus side, harvesting earlier and also using indigenous yeasts. This has some fine tannins from a short skin contact, which also gives more complexity and a touch of bitterness. It's a delicious and highly drinkable white. 21,200 bottles produced. This is their generic, regional wine and was bottled in May 2018."
