Pago del Vicario Blanco de Tempranillo 2022 (Castilla-La Mancha, Spain)
Yes, you read that right- this is a white wine made from 100% Tempranillo grapes! Made in the “blanc de noir” style, a method in which the grape skins are removed after pressing leaving just the white juice to ferment. While most commonly utilized in the Champagne region of France, Pago del Vicario decided to press their Tempranillo in this style, and the results are spectacular.
Viscous and bright, this medium to full bodied white has an unctuous palate full of notes of tropical fruit, quince, and pear. Hints of fresh herbs and green apple offer a brisk pop of acidity that balances out the lush palate perfectly.
Food Ideas: Calamares a la Romana, sailor-style mussels with fries, paneer tikka masala, frango na púcara (Portuguese chicken with wine sauce)
