Spain — Penedès • $19.95 • 89/100

The distinctive “White” on white label heralds an interesting wine. For it’s rare to see Xarel-lo in Ontario as a still table wine — it’s usually one of the favoured varieties used in Cava. This is pale straw in colour. Lemony floral aromas are edged by a hint of savoury herbs and a leesy resin note that adds depth. More fruit appears on the palate, which has a creamy, lemon, green apple and green melon character, with bright acidity drying the palate and the lemony finish. Intriguing. • Tasted 2017-08-05 • LCBO id#488742 • Find it at your nearest LCBOBRAND NEW DAY WINES & SPIRITS (Agent)
