Wine Description

This fragrant white offers floral and lychee aromas followed by tangerine and pine flavors, backed by juicy acidity. This shows some power, and appealing liveliness.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon Blanc blend has year after year been named one of Spain’s and the world’s great white wine values. The intense floral aromatics, freshness and wonderful texture are the result of the high elevation plantings in lime and gravel soils, with good drainage, that give rise to some of the best quality white wine grapes in Spain.
