The namesake wine of Beatrix Herranz! Beatrix is a young darling working in Rueda, Spain. Rueda tends to make simple-ish sauvignon blanc-ish wines but in the thoughtful hands of Herranz the grapes unravel into something much more complex and special. Is verdejo the chardonnay of Spain? Does it make sense to compare all wines to styles and grapes from France? Does the problem of eurocentrism enter the wine world in this way? Yes and no, I don’t know. I struggle with this question but to make things simple, this might be the chardonnay of Spain, with a bit more of a brazen edge. This is a really beautiful wine and if it was french it would be twice the price!
Please note, all wines come with a bag of chips!
