Review date: April 2, 2016

Wine Review: This straw colored white blend from Spain opens with a ginger beer, mineral water and lime like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, round, nicely acidic and lively. The flavor is a mineral infused ginger ale with hints of tart lime and ale. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine would pair very nice with steamers and drawn butter at your clambake this summer. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Parellada (locally, Montonec), Macabeo, Chardonnay, and a touch of Malvasía de Sitges. Parellada at its best, from high-altitude, gravelly mountain soils: intense lemon-oil aroma with firm acid structure enhanced by the rare, glyceric Malvasía. Stony and aromatic, reminiscent of France’s Chablis or Rheingau.

Organic status: organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
