THE REVIEW

Out of all the wines I could have opened over Memorial Day weekend, I chose the Erre Punto Blanco because of its unique versatility.
    Sauvignon Blanc fans will love Erre Punto's refreshing, lighter citrus elements; white Burgundy fans will love its elegance; and Italian white fans will be captivated by its minerality. You couldn't pick a more refreshing white to enjoy throughout the summer.
    Remirez de Ganuza is one of the preeminent producers in Spain. The winery's flagship red is a trophy wine for many collectors and regularly receives 94 - 97 points from The Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator. The winery's white wine, Erre Punto, is typically kept in Spain and reserved for the local community to enjoy. However, whenever it is available in the United States, we snatch it up.
    With a refreshing core, Erre Punto Blanco is a beautifully aromatic white that displays lighter aromas of apricot and lemon zest, with deeper notes of white peach. Lime, grapefruit and hints of lemon intertwine in the mouth, integrating with a wonderful texture and ever so slight hints of oak which rounds out the wine.
    Erre Punto Blanco is remarkably versatile and pairs well with any of your favorite summertime cuisine. Enjoy now and over the next five years - but given the recent heat, why wait? Read More »
