Spanish Whites around $20 (Daniel's): Light medium gold in color. The nose is flinty with minerals. Slightly sweet on the attack. An odd buttered sweet corn note. Turning slightly bitter on the finish. A nice wine.
In this case, the reviews are true. This is a fabulously complex and enchanting wine for $12 at Costco. It features a rich full aroma of tropical fruit and a mineral stoney balance which has harmonious body and taste.
After letting it breathe and warm up a little above 60F it's a hell of a wine at the price point that pairs well with many foods and holds up for days after being recorked. Primarily tropical and stone fruit, with some minerality. Medium to full body, slightly rich, with ample complexities. Tasted many times, with similar notes.
Color/App: medium/light yellow throwing quite a few nice, long legs in the glass. After letting warm up a bit out of the fridge: bold nose of lemon, wet rock and a little pineapple and oak. Quite a nice palate showing citrus, a little honey, minerals. Excellent acidity and midpalate structure with a decently long finish. Great everyday quaffer and quite the QPR. I've always had a soft spot for Verdejo and this is really a very very good one.
