World Tour of Wine

A Glass of Villa Narcisa Rueda Verdejo on a Sunny Day

It was a beautiful sunny day in Seattle, which is worth a celebration.  I decided a glass of Javier Sanz Viticultor Villa Narcisa 2010 Rueda Verdejo would do the trick.

I am still virtually making my way through Spain, nibble and sip, but today, I was somewhat unprepared culinary-wise.  But then again, maybe not.  I poured myself a small bowl of salted almonds, a glass of wine and found a sunny corner of the kitchen to sit and bask.  This could be very European of me, now that I think of it – no big production, just enjoying life with a glass of wine on the side.

I happen to be very pleased with my choice.  The wine, Javier Sanz Viticultor 2010 Villa Narcisa Verdejo, was the perfect pairing to a sunny day.  Light yellow in color (like a ray of sun), it had a green, fresh, light nose.  I could smell hints of honey, lemon or just citrus, but nothing over powering.  The palette matched the nose, light, airy, hints of citrus, a little floral.  Basically, it was Spring in a glass.

And this wine is worth raving about!  I love, love, loved the lightness of the wine.  It was the perfect match to my salty snack.  There was nothing over powering or too strong about this wine.  It is also a great stand alone wine.  To be honest, I had all of two almonds before ditching them just for the wine.

It has been awhile since I have enjoyed a glass of white this much and it was worth the wait.
