Ponce Reto Manchuela 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Intensely inviting aroma or citrus and quince with a creamy, leesy complexity and a hint of oatmeal, maybe even hay, and just a little salty. One of those wines that smells so good that I keep delaying the moment when I put it into my mouth. Utterly refreshing and still has layers of texture that add a fine-grained density. And all shrouded in a stony dryness that lingers after the fruit purity has cleansed your palate. Wonderful wine....17.5" JR 08/13 "20 Winter Whites Under $20: The Manchuela region of east-central Spain is little known to Americans, and grapes like the red bobal and white albillo are equally unfamiliar. But quality has greatly improved in recent years, and the wines are increasingly interesting, like this dry, penetrating albillo from Ponce, with a juicy, persistent citrus flavor, a pleasantly oily texture and a welcome touch of bitterness..."
