2014 Herència Altés "Benufet" Garnacha Blanca (Previously $18)

SKU #1270318 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The rather young, ultra-pale 2014 Benufet is Garnacha Blanca with 5% Viognier, fermented in stainless steel and bottled unoaked to keep purity of fruit and freshness. The palate is rather simple, fresh and with faint white fruit flavors. (LG)  (6/2015)

K&L Notes

The Spanish wine industry has a lot going for it right now. The wines are very affordable for the quality you get—that’s obviously the most important thing. But along with incredible value there’s an amazing amount of diversity across white, red and sparkling wine varietals. Wineries have incredibly old vines planted as well as young vines, and make wines at every price level. So as you drink more Spanish wines at the affordable level, if you’re intrigued you can then trade up to pricier, higher quality wines. A great mid-tier offering is this 2014 Herencia Altes "Benufet" Granacha Blanca, a step up from the entry-level offerings of Garnacha Blanca. This is 95% Garnatxa Blanca (the Catalonian name for the grape) with 5% Viognier. The wine has aromas of white flower and honeysuckle with a fresh, bright and zippy palate of honeydew melon, Asian pear, white flowers and jasmine. Great with fresh fruit, salads or seafood, this offers a delightful alternative for anyone who’s feeling bored with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
