60% Merseguera, 35% Viognier, 5% Malvasía - D.O. El Terrerazo
Internationally acclaimed winery Mustiguillo produces this delicious white wine using the almost lost indigenous variety, Merseguera. The 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.
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 balance between the fleshy Viognier/Malvasia and taut Merseguera continue on the medium-bodied palate with a fresh, fruity and floral attack and an 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.
The ideal match would be sashimi or any seafood.
