Pale gold. Intense, with fresh notes of orange and of exotic spices, floral and musky. Powerful on the palate, embracing and warm, with a punch of minerality.
Seleccion Especial is an aperitif wine that
goes very well with savoury dishes such as
jamón serrano, caña de lomo and other cured
meats. And of course foie gras. Another
surprising pairing you may like to try is with
tangerines - really!
"The entry level 2008 Seleccion Especial was fermented in stainless steel with the alcohol level achieved naturally. Fragrant tropical and floral aromas inform the nose of this smooth-textured, viscous, sweet white. Savory, round, and lengthy, it can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with fruit desserts."
The Wine Advocate
"Green-tinged yellow. Intensely perfumed, floral-accented aromas of nectarine, orange, white flowers and honey. Sweet, spicy and creamy, offering ripe pit and citrus fruit, spice and honey flavors, firmed by a solid mineral spine. Finishes sappy and very long, with lingering citrus and floral notes.
