Marqués de Riscal White Blend Rueda 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A bright, straw-yellow coloured wine. As you expect from a verdejo wine, on the nose it has high aromatic intensity, with tropical fruit and hints of fennel and fresh grass. In the mouth it is both syrupy smooth and refreshing, with a slightly bitter finish which is typical of the variety making it long and pleasant to drink. Overall it is a fresh, well-balanced wine.www.marquesderiscal.com

This white wine from the verdejo grape was a pleasant new encounter. It is an excellent, light fresh summer wine - a treat with shellfish or fish with a light sauce. Or just on its own as an aperitif. Herbaceous green notes on a citrus base. Priced around the equivalent of 12-13 USD in Europe. Serve well chilled.

The bouquet is alive with a mlange of floral, herbal and fruity scents - freshly cut tarragon, white lilly and mango. This fullness carries through on the palate; the wine is surprisingly rich with ripe fruit flavors balanced by a pleasing citrus acidity on the finish that cries out for food.
