Brilliant golden straw color. Floral, nutty aromas of lemon glaze, toasted sesame, fresh lily, and mountain path with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, delightful, medium-length almond cookie, orange blossom, apricot, and lime finish with well-integrated, fine tannins. A charming Spanish white full of flowers and citrus.

Serve in a White Wine Glass
The most famous white wines in Spain besides a Rioja Blanca and Albariño are those made from grapes such as Moscatel, Verdejo, Torrontes, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The latter is grown in several regions and most versions are light and meant for early consumption, although there are a few oak-aged version with vanilla and baked apple flavors that can stand up to most seafood.

Examples of Verdejo - sometimes blended with Viura, the principal white variety of white Rioja, are refreshing dry whites with flavors of nectarine and white flowers that are meant to be drink young with tapas or shellfish. These wine are priced in the $10-$12 category.
