Varietal: Tempranillo Blanco
Tempanillo Blanco shows itself as a light silvery yellow with tints of green. Typically it is light to medium bodied and will display notes of pear and mint with a gentle acidity.

Country: Spain
With more area under vines than any other country, it ranks third in terms of quantity of wine produced. The range of its wines is a reflection of the country's regional climatic diversity ranging from the rich and sumptuous reds of the hot and arid Ribera del Duero to the light, crisp whites of the cool Atlantic region of Galicia and Basque Country. For some of the country's best reds, try the regions of Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, and Murcia. Spain is also responsible for some of the world's finest fortified and dessert wines, the finest of which come from the town Jerez (Sherry), in Andalucía.

Region: Ribera del Duero
Ribera del Duero is situated along the Duero River on the northern plateau of the Iberian Peninsula in Northern Spain. This region experiences hot summers and harsh winters, with large temperature fluctuations from day to night. These extreme weather patterns give grapes the concentrated flavors and aromas the region has become known for. Ribera del Duero’s red wines are sourced almost entirely from the Tempranillo grape, or “Tinto Fino” as it is known in Ribera del Duero. It is not uncommon for other varieities such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec to be blended alongside Tinto Fino. These wines deliver deep colors, firm tannins and significant aging potential. Ribera del Duero has aging requirements similar to those in Rioja: “Crianza” wines must age at least two years with 12 months in oak; “Reserva” wines must age at least three years with 12 months in oak; “Gran Reserva” wines must spend five years aging with two in oak

Sub-Region:

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
