Pale straw color. Fruity, floral aromas of green apple in yogurt, white peach, graham cracker crumble on meringue, and orange flower water with a satiny, crisp, fruity light body and a smooth, cheery tangerine flesh and pith and nougat finish with no oak flavor. A silky Spanish white with delicate fruits and a floral charm.

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.
