The first release from Alavez was an absolute stunner. It wowed every judge that tasted it and was sent home from the 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition with a Double Gold medal. That means that every judge awarded the wine Gold status! Our experts have been eagerly anticipating this next release. The masters of Spanish white wines have done it again by creating a mouthwateringly pure wine. Prizing rich, textural freshness over bold fruit, this wine has a subtlety to it that makes you think. Bright acidity and a nose of restrained citrus make this a wine perfect for pairing. We think it’s best with fresh, light foods and have been pairing it with summer salads, olives, and grilled seafood. Judges love it too! It took home a Silver medal at the 2018 Sommelier Challenge.
For being as elegant and complex as wines anywhere else in the Old World, Spanish wines often fly totally under the radar. The country has so many different micro-climates, elevations, and natural styles that any wine lover can find a new favorite. Our wine experts have loved sourcing wines from all over the Iberian Peninsula.
Try this with fresh summertime foods: light salads, fresh seafood, or a cheese board.
