Tasting Notes Drink: 

Fincas de Azabache is a state-of-the-art cooperative, founded in December 1956. The Bodegas owns 2600 hectares of vineyards at the foot of Mount Yerga, in the dry region of the Rioja Oriental. Tempranillo blanco is a white Spanish wine grape variety that is grown in the Rioja DOC. It is a relatively `new` grape variety as it is a natural mutation of the red Tempranillo variety that is grown throughout Spain. The wine has fruity aromas with green apple, citrus and floral characters. Well balanced with a refreshing acidity and a light, fruity finish with delicate floral notes lingering on the palate.

Pair with: Hard ewes milk cheese, creamy blues, milder cheddars and hard cheese. Works well with most Spanish cheeses.

Our Perfect Cheeseboard: Dorset Crofters or Manchego, Ribblesdale Blue Goat, Lincolnshire Poacher, Otter Vale Quince Jelly, Miller’s Damsels Buttermilk and Figs. *Please not this bottle will not fit in our presentation boxes
