¡A nice little white blend (80% Verdejo, 10% Viura, 10% Sauvignon Blanc) from España! Bought this bottle at my favorite local shop when a rep form the winery (¡all the way from SPAIN!) was hosting a tasting on a Saturday in February. This crisp white made me long for spring/summer evenings on the patio. ¡It did not disappoint!
Not a ton on the nose of this one: got a slight citrus and some melon. The palate, however, was another story…
The Tierra Buena (that means “good soil” for those of you who are “Google Translate” deficient) had a nice, crisp, delicate acidity that carried some nice tropical fruit to the taste buds. I first got some honeysuckle, followed by some nice lemon zest and a hint of pineapple. As the wine warmed a bit, I got a little grapefruit, as well. This light-bodied white wine had a crisp, clean, delightful finish. ¡Color me impressed!
I paid a whopping $9 American Dollars for this wine. ¡For under $10, I say try this white! It’s a nice little wine for the patio or back yard, whether on a lazy Saturday afternoon or after work with some creamy cheese before dinner. It’s a great blend that gets the job done. I am looking forward to opening the Grupo Yllera Rueda 100% Verdejo I bought on the same trip to the local wine shop. Get this wine if you can. You won’t be disappointed and even if you are, it’s less than $10—suck it up! You’ve spent more on things you’ve been WAY less happy with.
