Winemaker's Notes

The grassy, fresh, citrus aroma and flavor profile is quite similar to Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire, except that with Oro de Castilla there's also a firm minerality that recalls the best examples of Sancerre.

A great pair would be sockeye salmon, Mahi Mahi or flounder simply pan fried in a beurre blanc, or plank roasted. Salads with grilled chicken, asparagus or toasted almonds would also pair well, as well as soft, ripe cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale yellow. Lemon pith and pear skin on the nose, with a deeper note of honey adding complexity. Musky, dry and incisive, with sappy orchard fruit and floral flavors accented by a touch of bitter herbs. Finishes with an echo of smoky minerals and a salty mineral quality."
