La Tremenda Merseguera 2016

A stunning combination of the relatively obscure Spanish varietal, Merseguera and Chardonnay come together in this blend from Enrique Mendoza's la Tremenda vineyard. Fermentation and ageing are carried out in stainless steel tank to preserve the fruitful essence of both varietals, leading to a clean and bright wine with green reflections and notes of green apple, straw and chamomile that radiate on the nose. Spirited green-apple flavors with a subtle saline nuance continue on the palate.  Crisp and dry with a pleasurable finish.

Tasting Notes

White clean and bright, greenish-yellow colour. The nose is reminiscent of Green Apple, Hay and herbs such as Chamomile, Peppermint and Pennyroyal. On the palate notes of Apple green and light and delicate touches of saline with a dry long finish.

Food Pairing

Seafood dishes, grilled fish and light meats, salads and rice dishes, grilled shellfish and salty cheeses.
