TASTING NOTE: The varied topography of the Sonsierra, where the old-vine Viura and Garnacha for this were handpicked, creates advantageous pockets where subtle differences manifest in the grapes. This is pretty and floral with hints of herbs and spice on the nose. Zesty and lithe on the palate with more prominent spice notes, bright fruit, grapefruit citrus, a mineral undertone and a long, savoury finish. A great value and versatile enough to pair with whatever you're serving. (Vintages panel, July 2018) Price $ 12.95
