I have commented on this wine in the past. I still think it is an awesome bargain (US$3.49 at Total Wines and at Cost Plus World Marketplace). An uncomplicated, refreshing wine that still stands up to a hearty meal. We had it with pizza, last night.
Nose is a bit closed, like a pinot gris, light and grassy. Apricot and pear round it out. The mouth is also mild, slightly buttery, and generally pleasant.
Floral and lightly sweet with white grape aromas. Nice and fresh on the palate, lemon and good medium acidity. Great value!
versatile light inexpensive white...good for sipping or with white fish.
Fruity and fresh on the nose. Medium acidity, striking peach notes. Pears and a little pineapple on the finish
Very rich, sweet nose, lots of fruity flavor: lemon, peach, pineapple. Perfect for a white sangria on a hot day.

External Reviews for René Barbier White Blend Catalunya Mediterranean White
Aromas of grapefruit and slate are clean. the palate runs zesty to the point of being spritzy, with pink grapefruit and apricot flavors. Tangy and juicy, and totally uncomplicated. A picnic wine in every sense.
Good clean white wine is hard to find at this price. Serve this well chilled at a summer cocktail party and the fresh grape flavors will lighten the mood.
Renandeacute; Barbier Mediterranean White is made from the first pressing of Parellada, Macabeo, and Xarel-lo grapes, the same blend of grapes that produces Cavas. This is a down-to-earth country wine, cheerful; and crisp, with forward fruit. It delightfully enhances healthy Mediterranean-style fish, vegetable, veal, and pasta dishes.
This bright, friendly white has fruity, almost candied flavors of orange, lemon and lime, with vanilla accents and a round, soft texture kept crisp by tart acidity. Drink now.
This simple summer sipper is clean, fresh and grassy, with aromas of apple and green melon. Surprisingly mouthfilling for something so easygoing, but still packed with melon and citrus flavors. Fresh and zesty, and just right for patio parties.
