José Louis Mateo García
Candea Monterrei DO Blanco 2018

From the northwesternmost reaches of Spain, in a mountainous area known for vineyard farming dating back to Roman times. JLM Garcīa and his brother set out to revive abandoned vineyards at ear-popping altitudes; now they farm the young vines for the Candea cuvees. An ode to simplicity, this wine offers floral, rounded fruit, and a broad texture with a streak of saline running through it.
