4/2010 Vina do Campo Ribiero 2008

Ah, it is SO nice to try wine made from grapes that are not so common here in the United States.  Too much of the shelf space in our stores are filled with the usual suspects—Chardonnay, Merlot, etc.

This Spanish wine is a blend of Treixadura (70%) and Torrontes (40%).

It comes in a handsome tall, thin green bottle.  It is pleasant but not light (like Pinot Grigio tends to be) or watery.  It is viscous and slightly sweet, and Vina do Campo shows notes of pear, honeysuckle, and toast.  We enjoyed it. (Rating ***3/4)
