From the north-eastern region of D.O. Catalunya Spain, Parellada shines as the leading white variety, though often used to craft the beloved Cava wines of neighboring Penedes. But the creamy, juicy, variety, with a nice bit of acidity, shows beautifully as a still wine, as displayed in Torres Vina Sol ($10). The wine blends Parellada with Garnacha Blanca, delivering a textured roundness with ripe, fruity apple, pear, golden pineapple, and white peach. Fresh and easy, enjoy with sushi, creamy cheese, or even spicy Thai. #Cheers
A nice Spanish $10 wine captures the spirit of Espana. No airs or frivolity. Just good wine.
