What could possibly be "local" about this wine, you ask? I mean, it says Penedes on the label even! This delicious Spanish white is the product of a collaboration between legendary Cava producer (Can Tutusaus) and one of our favorite importers, based out of Detroit! Some of you may have even met Nuria (of Vinovi & Co) at one of our tastings, as this native Barcelonan now resides in the Mitten, bringing unique Spanish wines to our neighborhoods.

This lovely white is made from the Xarel-lo grape, usually used in the production of Cava, grown at high altitude in the Penedes region (just West of Barcelona). And what have we come to know about high-altitude wines? Acidity! Full of fleshy orchard fruits with a richly aromatic nose, this wine finishes clean and bright thanks to that crisp acidity.

Food Ideas: blue cheese and endive gratin, baked whitefish w/rosemary cream sauce, seafood risotto, Thai tom yum soup
