Mantel Blanco Verdejo 2006

I’ve been meaning to write this wine up for a while, but the image has been a bit pesky. So, A small promo shot will have to do for now. I gave the Martel Blanco Sauv Blanc a bit of a wrap, but really the star from these guys in the Verdejo. This is a textbook example and comes in at a very reasonable price.

Bright golden hay in colour, with a classic verdejo nose of apples and pears with some fennel bulb and a touch of fresh green peas. Nicely textured with a very subtle bit of sweetness on the mid palate that works with the driving acid. The palate shows apple and lemon, a touch a tropical fruit and finishes off with a long clean finish that shows some bitter sage. I could drink this wine all day on a warm day. 88 Pts.
