Baja California is a force to reckon with in the world of wine. The Valle de Guadalupe just outside of Ensenada proper has been transforming itself into producing world-class wines since the last century. In fact, Bodegas de Santos Tomas, founded in 1888, is the oldest operating winery in Mexico. The issue with Mexico is strict export legislation to other countries as well as its own internal distributions. However, other international markets mainly the United States are seriously considering and making efforts to appropriate the wines globally. Medium gold. Medium intensity on the nose orchard fruits of red delicious apples, green pears, mandarin orange, white pepper toasted buttermilk biscuits On the palate dry, medium + alcohol, medium acid, full-body, creamy texture, with ripe tree fruits, honeysuckle, honeydew melon, cereal milk, lemon yogurt, white pepper medium + finish. This is a very good wine.
It has a good structure from blended varieties. Vermentino is perfumed and fruity, and Chardonnay supports the backbone and less character giving it a silky texture. The fruits and acids are nicely balanced. It’s an uncomplicated wine, fresh, bright and youthful. Drink now, without aging potential. It is a lovely wine to drink now.
