Picante 2010 Costa Atlantica Vino Blanco

There's a lot of value to be found in the Spanish wines being imported by Echelon and McWilliam's - and while the reds tend to grab all the attention a couple of the whites are absolute bargain buys. A blend of viura and verdejo grapes crafted by Javier Murua from vines off the Atlantic coast of western Spain, this is a drink-now proposition that probably won't improve but it has vibrant floral aromas and stone fruit and sea spray notes on the palate, along with some some interesting textural elements. Food-friendly, too, and terrific for $14.
