Navarra DO, Spain; 13% ABV
$3 at the Richmond, CA, store on 22 Feb
This very pretty label and low price were immediately interesting! I opened it this evening and I think it is quite good wine for the money, but it is very Spanish…
… which means (IMO) that its fruit is quite restrained, with more acid and minerality than most CA Chardonnays. It tastes of green / yellow grape skin, riper yellow apple / pineapple, and white-fruity mineral oil. I’d guess that Seedboy would like this pretty well, although bets on his preferences are always risky. 🙂
The next day, the flavors are much the same, although more smooth and perhaps showing a little oxidation.
