Why You’ll Like It?
The white 2014 Navaherreros Blanco de Bernabeleva is a blend of 60% Albillo Real and 40% Macabeo (aka Viura) from 35- to 90-year-old vines planted on granite soils at 700 to 800 meters altitude. Albillo is often dubbed the hidden treasure of Spanish whites. Both varieties are harvested by hand and each sees a short period of skin contact before wild yeast fermentation in a mixture of large French and Austrian oak and stainless steel.

Tastes Like?
The white 2014 Navaherreros Blanco de Bernabeleva offers a rich, glycerol mouthfeel, while the macabeo inserts a vibrant streak of fresh acidity. Even at 2 years old, this wine displays a golden yellow colour that's distinctive for Albillo. It has aromas of white flowers, pear, lemon zest, herby and a hint of honey. Flavours of yellow peach, minerality, toasty and savoury. It has the depth and texture to work with most dishes.
