Looking for a fresh new summer white? Me too. Luckily our wonderful rep Heather brought us this! Meet Mestizaje Blanco! I couldn’t pronounce this wine while trying to order it for the shop, so I had to look it up. Say it with me… “mest-i-zah-hay”. This is a beautiful Spanish blend, and as an added bonus, the estate vines are grown organically. With 75% Merseguera, 20% Viognier, 5% Malvasia, Mestizaje is a unique blend. It’s really something you have to try for yourself. I immediately fell in love with its racy acidity. It’s crisp and fresh without being abrasive. Notes of apricot and tropical fruit are refreshing without being sweet. Mestizaje is truly a bright summer white. Drink it on the porch, or pair it with food (I might try it with stuffed artichokes later this week)! Mestizaje is a value considering its 100% organic estate fruit, and it’s always nice to try something new. This one of a kind Spanish white is definitely worth a try, and for under $20 it won’t break the bank.
Enjoy it! (I know I will this summer). Cheers!
