La Bascula, Catalan Eagle White Wine 2013, Spain

A United Nations sponsored wine? Well, not really, but its made in northern Spain by business partners English Master of Wine Ed Adams and South Africa winemaker Bruce Jack, and uses a mix of Spanish and French grape varieties, so it's a pretty good candidate. It is made mostly from old vines of white Grenache (or Garnacha as it is known in Spain), with French partners Viognier and some Roussanne in the blend. Its a delightful wine, brimming with succulent orchard and stone-fruit aromas, rich in texture and filling the mouth with fleshy, sweet peach fruit but always retaining real bite through its cooling acidity.
