Mantel Blanco Verdejo, 2012, Rueda, Spain

12 Jan

DSC03185100% Verdejo from Spain’s Rueda region. Verdejo is an interesting grape that can produce fleshy, ripe wines underlined by racy acidity. This is just such a wine, with aromas and flavors of ripe Bartlett pear enlivened with a vibrant seam of acidity. A quintessential quaffer in warm weather, it will work beautifully beside weighty winter dishes like New England clam chowder. $16
