Teresa’s Notes –
Easy drinking, unoaked white, perfect wine start to a meal or an afternoon with the girls! Green apples & apricots with a pleasing jasmine aroma…just like sitting in your Spanish garden in the Summer.
This wine has been named “ocho y media” ( 8 & a half) because the vineyards where the grapes are grown for this wine are 850m above sea level
