White, bordering on orange, wine from Alicante.
A white from the often blisteringly hot southeast of Spain, in Alicante. This is almost an orange wine, that is to say, one in which the grape must has spent a short amount of time in contact with the skins, in the same way as a red wine would be made. The result is a wine with more texture than your average white wine, and some delicious orange peel notes, which balance delightfully with the floral tones of the Moscatel grape. Despite the heat, this relatively low in alcohol and has a decent amount of acidity, making it wonderful with food.
