"The aromas are an interesting mix of grassy and herbally notes but include white flowers, honeysuckle, and citrus blossoms. Flavors include pear, green apple, honeydew melon, and bitter almond. There is a medium body, good balance and acidity, and there is a minerally and refreshing full finish with an interesting hint of bitterness.
Food pairings would include sole, crab, shrimp, seabass, swordfish, clams, seafood pasta and salads, veal, pork, chicken, Asian noodle and vegetable dishes, creamy Mexican food, enchiladas, and charcuterie."
Bodegas Tampesta is a family-run winery like many other we work with here in Del Duero Wines. They have a strong dedication to maintaining the heritage of viticulture in their area and to producing very high-quality and expressive wines from native varietals. What is also interesting in working with such smaller family wineries is that their strong dedication also extends to their considerable financial investment in state-of-the-art fermentation equipment for maintaining the freshness and expressiveness of their wines.
Founded in 1999, Bodegas Tampesta was a bet on Leon's Southern winemaking areas, as well as on its autochtonous varietals (Prieto Picudo, and Albarin Blanco).
