Viñedos de Nieva Rueda Blanco Nieva Pie Franco 2006

Member Review by tommyvino:

A medium straw yellow color with a strong aromatic nose of citrus fruit, fresh garden herbs, exotic tropical fruit, and slight cat pee. The palate is flavorful with grapefruit, ripe golden apple, and pineapple. This wine is dry, medium heavy bodied, with tart acidity, and a medium finish. This is a very distinct style of sauvignon blanc, somewhere in between New Zealand and Sancerre with a twist of tropical flavors. 4/5

Pale greenish yellow in color, with powerful aromas of honeydew, green apple, guava, and kiwi. This wine is dry, medium bodied, tart acidity, and a medium finish. On the palate it is very flavorful with nuances of crushed stone, star fruit, mango, and dried herbs. Tons of tropical fruit notes on the nose with dried zesty herbs and a crisp minerality on the palate. Work it out with fresh goat cheese and seafood. 4/5

A revealing, crisp and citrusy wine with wet stone aromas. Persistent passion and tropical fruit balanced with minerality and refreshing length.
