Duris Viura-Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Duris Viuba-Sauvignon Blanc 2005This is an odd little wine, it comes from a non DO area in Castilla y Leon and is a blend of Viura and Savignon Blanc.  Oh and its very cheap, under $10 at retail in Melbourne. I've heard about these great Spanish wines for under $10 in the US, and I was suckered in.  The good ones cost $20+ here.

Not a lot happening on the nose, a bit of passion fruit and white flowers, but a bit dull really.  Well balanced and fresh in the mouth, it has a great oily texture that hides some fennel seed, lemon and melon.  Finish is quite long for what it is.  For a tenner, its interesting, if a bit ho hum.  80 Pts.

  1. For the money its a good midweeker or BBQ wine. I think this is a Dans only special, they also have a fairly expensive Ribera del Duero wine as well…
