Ribera wit nu beschermd: DO

In de witte Ribera-DO moet voor 75% het druivenras Arbillo Mayor zijn verwerkt.

 

Voor het eerst in de historie van Ribera del Duero krijgt een witte wijn de DO-status, afkorting voor beschermde herkomst. Dat betekent dat 315 wijnboeren en –bodega’s die kwaliteitsaanduiding op het etiket mogen zetten. Voorheen was er in die streek voor witte wijn alleen een streekwijn beschermd (IGP), namelijk die van Castilla y Leon. In de witte DO-wijn moet minstens 75 % van het druivenras arbillo mayor zijn verwerkt. Thedrinksbusiness meldt :

 

 

‘Ribera del Duero’s ruling council has changed its regulations to allow the region’s wineries to make white wines under the main DO for the first time in its history.

The change, which was finalised last week, will allow the 315 producers across the DO to produce and sell white wines using the DO label on the bottle. Previously, white wine production in Ribera del Duero was limited to one protected geographical indication, Castilla y Leon IGP, and accounted for less than 3% of the region’s wine production.

Under the new regulations for ‘La Ribera Blanca’, wineries will be able to produce a white wines that contain at least 75% of the region’s main white grape Albillo Mayor, a variety that accounts for nearly 5% of total plantings in the DO and which is already authorised for inclusion in the DO’s red blends. Other permitted varieties include Pirules, Malvaisa, Viura, Verdejo, Albariño, Hondarrabi Zuri, Palomino, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Treixadura and Viognier. This mirrors the varieties currently allowed in Castilla y Leon IGP.

The DO was established in 1982 by a small group of local growers who saw the potential of the area, which until that point had primarily produced grapes to sell to co-ops for bulk wine. Tempranillo accounts for more than 95% of the grapes grown in the DO, and according to DO regulations, the variety must make up a minimum of 75% of all DO red wines, with the balance being made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Garnacha Tinta and Albillo Mayor.
