Peninsula Oveja Blanca Dry Muscat 2021
Fontana Bodegas, who produce this wine, is based in Castilla la Mancha in Central Spain, and the grapes for this cheeky quaffer are sourced from the municipality of Ucl?s. where they grow at a height of 700-900 metres. The winemaking team consists of oenologist Tom?s Buendia and New Zealand based Master of Wine Sam Harrop, and their aim is to produce wines that offer an interesting modern take on local wine traditions, giving both a sense of place and remarkable value.
This is an elegant example of dry Muscat, showing the freshness and balance of high altitude vineyards. Pale, bright yellow, intensely aromatic and expressive on the nose, with aromas reminiscent of lychees, grapefruit and rose petals. Light bodied and very fresh on the palate, with the intense fruit perfectly balanced by the crisp acidity and a dry, mineral finish.
