Alvarez y Diez 2005 Sauvignon Blanc Spain

Alvarez y Diez 2005 Mantel Blanco that is entirely comprised of the Verdejo grape.. This delicious interpretation of the grape comes from old-vines and takes on a full-bodied, round mouth feel from the French and American oak barrel fermenting. Bright straw yellow in color, the 2005 Mantel Blanco has a very expressive nose with tropical fruit notes and touches of sweet spice and cocoa. The full fruited flavors and excellent acidity make this wine best enjoyed with fresh cheeses, mixed salads, poultry, fish, and rice dishes. [+]
