The more the warmer gets hot and humid, the more I crave a refreshing white wine that has what it takes to satisfy my thirst and make me say “wow!!!” That’s exactly what the white wine from Spanish producer Coca i Fito does. Here’s a winery that is blazing trails in many parts of Spain, and turning out stunning wines at every turn.
Their 2017 Jaspi Blanc Terra Alta is an alluring blend of Grenache Blanc and Macabeo that is a real head turner. The wine which rests on lees for 4 months or so is vinified in steel, so the freshness is preserved, and the fruit stays full forward.
The 2017 Jaspi Blanc Terra Alta is one of those racy, crisp and fruit forward wines that just screams for Asian food, especially Thai or Vietnamese cooking, where the flavors and spice can be countered by the lovely spice in the wine. Perhaps it’s the Mediterranean climate that brings out a Provencale or Garrigue aroma to the bouquet, or maybe it’s the fresh green apples and pear scents that attract you.
Either way, this wine is as seductive as it is playful. Fresh flowers, lemon-lime, and orange peel citrus flavors hit you from the first sip and continue all the way through.
That’s why the 2017 Jaspi Blanc Terra Alta is today’s WineSiders’ Wine of The Day!!!
