Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Review date: November 21, 2016

Wine Review: This dark yellow colored Spanish wine opens with a fresh pear and honeydew melon like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and fresh, yet has some roundness. The flavor profile is a tart green apple with notes of minerality and lemon. I also detected hints of tangerine. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. Its acidity and flavors linger nicely after the wine is gone. This wine would pair nicely Emeril’s crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a highly complex wine combining the aromas of ripe peach, pineapple, anise, orange blossom and citrus aromas of mandarin orange with undertones pleasingly reminiscent of mineral, earthy touches and notes of bay leaf and mint. The first impression is that of a wine of great character, full-bodied and fleshy on the palate, powerful structure and velvety feeling. This consistency, along with its fresh, amiable acidity, offers us an enjoyable, intense wine with a long finish. It is a complex yet easily drinkable wine. It would pair well with seafood, especially oysters and crab. It is also perfect with Asian cuisine with rich and spicy sauces.
