2019 Verdelho

2019-Verdelho

The color is medium yellow with a green tint. The wine opens with fresh aromas of Pippin apple, orange zest, pineapple and kiwi. With time in the glass, a second wave of aromas appears: Crenshaw melon, pear and tropical notes of guava and papaya. Flavors parallel the aromas. In the mouth, the texture is round, silky, and delicate. The wine finishes very crisp and racy, a multi-faceted wine for warm spring & summer afternoons around the pool or patio.

Food Pairings: Our Verdelho excels when paired with delicate white fish like Petrale sole, niçoise salad and ripe, freshly sliced fruits. Mild white cheeses, both creamy and hard, along with goat cheese also pair very well with this wine.

Calafia 2016 La Reina
The color is deep ruby red with blue and violet hues. The aromas are of black fruit: blackberry, cassis, licorice, nutmeg and clove. The flavors follow similarly: elderberry, currants and dark bakers chocolate with nuances of allspice and new French Oak. On the palate the wine is very full, found and coating.
