4/30/12 Word On Wine Review: White Rioja and Vermentino!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

Two absolute winners for those of us who like white wine for Spring/Summer.

1)2009 El Brozal Single Vinyard White Rioja!  A mixture of a zillion grapes made in a vineyard that goes back to 1938, 1 km. southwest of El Villar!  Who knew.  $36 per bottle great acid nice long finish…stone fruit, yellow apples…we both liked this very much!

2)2010 Villa Solais Vermentino from Santadi.  This Vermentino comes to us from Sunny Sardinia!  Lush!  Ripe!  Soft pressed, on the lees…Beautiful!  Lots of florals…gardenias galore!  $16 unusual and a metziah!  Click and enjoy!
