This wine is made of 100% Tempranillo Blanco. This, unlike other ‘white’ red wines like white pinot noir (which is just regular Pinot Noir that has been vinified white), is an actual white clone of Tempranillo-A completely different grape. SO COOL! This wine only sees stainless steel, leaving us a pure representation of this rare variety.
100% Pedro Ximénez. Alvear is one of the top-three bodegas in the Montilla-Moriles region. It’s the oldest winery in the region and they produce some of the finest wines. The Pedro Ximénez grape variety is not only the star of DO Montilla-Moriles but also of the wines and vineyards owned by Bodegas Alvear. Legend has it that it was brought from the Rhine by a solider serving in the Spanish army in Flanders, who consequently gave it his name.
This is a single-vineyard 100% Riesling from the
Marlborough appellation on the south island of New Zealand. Though we think of New Zealand as the land of
grapefruit-focused Sauvignon Blanc, its cool climate has made it an ideal
candidate for growing a variety of white grapes, including Riesling.
The Saint M Riesling shows this vintage character with its juicy apple, melon and citrus aromas, its lush and lifted mid-palate, and its subtle, drying finish. It is a purely delicious Riesling from the Pfalz, Germany
