Limpid gold. Fresh peach, pineapple and tangerine on the highly perfumed, floral-tinged nose. Sappy and seamless texture, offering juicy tropical and citrus fruit flavors that are sharpened by a spicy flourish. Shows very good energy and spicy lift on a long, penetrating finish that echoes the floral note. This wine's Viognier component is definitely making itself heard here.
"65% Merseguera, 24% Viognier & 11% Malvasia. From the almost lost indigenous variety, Merseguera, these estate vines are grown organically at Finca Calvestra, at over 900 meters altitude. These vines were grafted onto existing Bobal vines (of over 40 years) where the Bobal could not reach maturity due to the altitude. Native yeast fermentation in tank and aged sur lies in stainless steel. The Viognier is immediately apparent on the nose with apricot, tropical fruit and honey while underlying notes of white peach, scented flowers and citrus hints creep in from the Merseguera. The tightwire balancing act between the fleshy Viognier & Malvasia and taut Merseguera brings a fresh, fruity and floral attack to the unctuous mid palate that is kept in check by bracing acidity. Truly one of a kind, Mestizaje shows its unique personality is this pleasant, crispy, imminently friendly wine." - Importer
