Destinos Blanco

“Light golden/green color and some aromas of melon, guava, pineapple and maybe even toasted almonds. which yield to clean tastes of melon, apple, grapefruit and miscellaneous tropical fruits. It's made entirely from Macabeo grape, which is a major component of Cava, the Spanish sparkling wine from the northeast of that country. Light and dry, this wine will be a good accompaniment to lighter foods. It's a simple wine, but an interesting departure from more unctuous examples of California white wines near this price.”

Food Affinity: “Good reception/starter wine. Would do justice to tapas (appetizers) of mussels, smoked fish, grilled gambas al ajillo (shrimps) and marinated pulpo (octopus). For more familiar fare, it would also work with artichoke dip, slices of braunschweiger and many lighter dry cheeses.”
