A new favorite
We came across this wine in our hotel in Sierra Nevada, but were unable to find it in the UK. I am a red wine drinker, but for our evening meal I shared this with my wife, I loved it, so much I shipped a dozen bottles back to the UK... & will be back for more.. I am not a wine snob, however generally drink "new world" wines, Australia, Chile etc.. but this Spanish wine is awesome, & at this price!!. Cheaper shipped to the UK than in our Spanish hotel!!!
Very nice underrated wine
Sadly this, is in my opinion, not quite as good as the 2016 vintage, however an excellent wine especially at the price. If this wine was French, it would be double the cost. I'm no wine expert, but I rate this vintage very highly, & will be getting another case soon. Worth a try if you enjoy Sav Blanc. If you do get chance try the 16 & then the 17?
Evenings on the balcony
I'm one of those who serves Sauvignon Blanc as an apero and, since I came across the Yllera Blanco, I have made it my standard. It has an edge and freshness but avoids the intensity, and sometimes sharply sour taste, of some southern hemisphere comparators.
Ein sehr intensiver , fruchtiger, nach tropischen Früchten schmeckender komplexer Weißwein; wie immer schnell, zuverlässig und in guter Verpackung geliefert.
