2005 Alvarez y Diez Rueda Mantel Blanco

  • 2005 Alvarez y Diez Rueda Mantel Blanco – Spain, Castilla y León, Rueda (8/2/2006)
    The nose shows green apple straight away followed by light honey notes, mustiness and a bit of cat pee. Overall the nose is forceful but a bit restrained as far as nuance. In the mouth the acidity is high but yeilds to a creamy finish. Light peach, and floral notes make out the palate on the onset, with time though you start to pick up a bit of dusty earth, and limey citrus. Rich and lush wine from an intense vintage.
    3.5 grape
