Elegance with a contemporary soul, the wine is slightly off dry, but with a lush palate. A Great all-rounder.
The Catalunya climate is fully Mediterranean and continental. Soils are calcareous sedimentary deposits that are poor in organic matter, with silt and clay.
A blend of Moscatel de Alejandría and Gewürztraminer Catalunya. The Moscatel de Alejandría grapes are harvested in early September and the Gewürztraminer grapes are harvested in mid-September. The grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel under controlled temperature for 14 days. Brilliant straw yellow. Very fragrant, with delicate floral (rose) and fruit (lychee) notes. Soft and seductive on the palate with a luscious (acacia honey) finish.
They also do a rose, (Granacha) which I would like to try.
She went very well with quiches on the first night and was in great form for baked cod with Mediterranean style crust the second night.
If we were listening to this Esmeralda, she’s be one of the chorus for Giannis and Mikis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cE_RDYh9Mo
If we were drinking down at her older sister’s place (Rising Sun), we’d want a big fat Red. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfh5QOb1adE
