• Much nicer than I expected after sampling with lunch. Rich mouthfeel, lush and soft but with a medium body, with notes of pear drops and citrus.
• White wine from a Rioja mass producer. Viura is the grape in this wine (Macabeu for cava lovers). This is an easy citrusy wine, nice to drink on a warm day. It lacks some minerality and crispness but at less than €4 this is bargain.
• Very fresh on nose and palate. Light citrus flavor.
