Macabeo and Sauvignon Blanc are perfect partners in this bright and balanced blend. Together they show aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, with soft white blossom. The palate is lush and layered with pronounced flavors of green apple, pear, grapefruit, and tropical fruit, with light notes of honeysuckle and grass. Fresh and flavorful with lively acidity, elegant complexity, and medium persistence.

About the region:
Manchuela is framed by the Júcar and Cabriel rivers, whose sediments make up the limestone-based clay soils. Two large reservoirs to the north provide irrigation during the very dry growing season. Vineyards here are 600-1000m above sea level; the altitude has a cooling effect and combines with fresh Mediterranean winds to moderate the hot summer days. This helps slow ripening, resulting in white grapes that produce fresh, fruity wines with good acidity..
Signature food pairing: Baked Feta With Tomatoes, Capers & Olives
An upgraded twist on a viral favorite, this easy and indulgent baked cheese can be served as an appetizer or transformed into the main course. The crisp acidity of the Winexpert™ LE21 Macabeo Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect match for the tangy, salty ingredients in this dish.

This kit went together without a problem! When I was racking the wine I always have a taste. I can pretty much tell if it’s a good wine or bad. I do believe it will be a great summer wine for hanging out with friends on a warm summer night or delicious with our fish dinners.
Am just now getting to bottle this wine now but it was super easy to process! So far 5-star but i’ll return after we break into a bottle this weekend!
