Pale in color with a nose with lots of minerality coming through. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice crisp dry citrus, maybe even grapfruit coming through and lots of minerality. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice vibrant and acidity and the citrus notes linger a bit. This is a lovely dry food friendly wine, a really lovely example of a Verdejo. I would give it an 88 or so … The LCBO say Full bodied and rich … huh, odd description.

José Pariente Verdejo 2016 — VINTAGES#: 345058
José Pariente Verdejo 2016
STYLE – Full-bodied & Rich
Pungent aromas of lime skin, ruby red grapefruit, nectarine, and a pleasant touch of celery seed combine to create a complex nose to this zippy wine. The palate is rich and contains more citrus flavors with ample acidity for a bright finish. Excellent. Highly Recommended. Score – 90. (Ultimate Wine Challenge, 2017) $19.95
