More and more, savvy wine drinkers are turning to Spain’s Rueda region, where fresh and fruity whites based on the Verdejo grape are very much in fashion. ”gorgeously youthful and zingy.”
Breezy citrus, stone fruit and honeysuckle notes make this trend-setting Spanish white the perfect aperitif, and a must-try alternative to New Zealand Sauvignon.
3 Bottles of Alma Andina 2014
Here’s a delicious, barrel-aged Chardonnay courtesy of the talented Steve McEwen and some of his estate's highest vineyards in the premium districts of Alto Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. It’s quiet, high-altitude valleys like these that produce the finest quality Argentine Chardonnay, as warm days and cool nights promote a long, slow ripening period.
Aged eight months in French and American barrels (for a gently toasty, vanilla-oaky character), the wine delivers pure citrus and orchard fruit flavors – making it a mouthwatering aperitif.
