DeMoya “Diego” Merseguera/Chardonnay, Valencia Spain $17.99
Merseguera is a little-known white wine grape variety grown along the southeastern coast of Spain. Plantings are relatively few, and centered on the vineyards of Valencia, Alicante and Jumilla. This wine is 70% Mersegura and 30% Chardonnay. This wine displays mineral aromas with notes of fruits like apple and some apricot. There are also notes of fresh hazelnuts, toasted almonds and some freshly baked bread. The entrance is opulent, it persists to a full mouth feeling with well polished tannins. The end is fresh with a good persistence of complex aromas from ageing.
