Alvarez Y Diez Rueda Mantel Blanco 2005

Member Review by ryanopaz:

The nose shows green apple straight away followed by light honey notes, mustiness and a bit of cat pee. Overall the nose is forceful but a bit restrained as far as nuance. In the mouth the acidity is high but yeilds to a creamy finish. Light peach, and floral notes make out the palate on the onset, with time though you start to pick up a bit of dusty earth, and limey citrus. Rich and lush wine from an intense vintage. 3.5/5 [NR]

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
