This was fun. Very ripe fruit but fair balance in all its Iberian goodness.

This wine is has some nutty oxidation (for this blend that's a good thing), and extended skin fermentation. Orange peel/oil, yellow peach, dried herbs, dry earth nose, adding oak spice and lees to that and very good acidity. The mid-palate weight makes this an awesome pairing with seafood paella or light to med-firm fish with orange zest and wild rice.

2013 Dido Blanco is so fresh. None of the waxiness from years past. Just clean and precise on the palate. Great wine for the price. Drink in volume.

This was ideal for a Sunday luncheon; rich, textural with just a faint lick of fino - 2013
