Atance 'Cuvee No 1' Blanco Valencia, Spain 2019Regular price $14.00
The fruit for this Spanish white blend is grown organically on a working ranch/farm in the heart of Valencia. Winemaker Toni Sarrión made his name rescuing the Bobal grape from obscurity here in Valencia, and in his spare time turns the same attention to regional white varietals in need of a little sponsorship.
70% Merseguera, a low-acid, heat-resistant varietal, and 30% Malvasia, a blending grape used to make Madeira, braid together for a lush palate of tropical fruit and a touch of nuttiness. Stainless steel aging keeps some acidity intact to balance the opulence of this weightier wine.
Food Ideas: butter-basted garlic prawns, smoked turkey w/molé sauce, sweet potato hash, dirty rice, smoked oyster stew
