2015 Vinos Sanz Clásico

This is a great way to introduce yourself and others to Spanish white wines. Verdejo, a common white wine in Spain does best when paired with food. Our favorite is fish tacos with a citrus or mango salsa. The Viura (also known as Macabeo) ads dried fruit aromas and almond flavors. The two combined make a great, easy drinking with or with our food wine that even the sommelier in the room will love.  
Grown in one of the oldest wineries in Rueda. Around since 1870 the family estate of  Vinos Sanz, is making Clásico with the oldest Verdejo and Viura vines in the DO. Low yielding vines with intense fruit, balanced with modern cultivation. Clásico is one of our favorite whites. With great citrus notes and a full balance with a great finish.
