Álvarez Y Díez Mantel Blanco 2010

External Review:

Sehr saubere und offene Nase; Litchi, Maracuya und Limetten sind Bestandteile dieses an exotische Früchte erinnernden Weines. Rassig im Gaumen, leichter Kohlensäureeinfluss, sehr schöne Balance, voller Körper, anhaltender Abgang.

In 1997 Enrique J. de Benito began a complete overhaul of the winery, based on a change in the business philosophy. The existing installations were built, fitted out with the most up-to-date winemaking technology available at that time. Convinced that the science of grape-growing is the cornerstone for making great wines, vines were planted further to investigate this aspect of the business, especially of the “Verdejo” variety, one of the key elements for achieving the exceptional wines for which the Rueda D.O. is justifiably renowned. In 1992 his son, Juan, became Managing Director. This marked the start of the second phase of restructuring, based on the same business philosophy but introducing further updating and modernization. A further son, Alvaro, joined the company in 2001, with responsibility for the Commercial and Export areas, helping to design the new expansion and marketing plans. Today, Alvarez & Diez has an important presence in the domestic market and we export to over fifteen countries. Read less

Helles Gelb mit aprikosenfarbenem Schimmer. Offenes Fruchtbouquet mit viel weissem Pfirsich, frischer Ananas, Holunderblüten und feiner Muskattraubennote. Tänzerischer Gaumen mit wiedeum viel Frucht, blumige Nuancen und nun auch feine Exotik, angenehme Fülle und unverkennbare Grapefruitfrische bis ins traubige Finale. Ein Volltreffer.
