We are always on the lookout for interesting and value wines. This is from the small region of Somontano in the Aragon region in the North of Spain. Set in the foothills of the Pyrenees, the cooler climate is perfect for producing white wines and it is an area with a lot of similarities to Central Otago. This is an unusual blend of Chardonnay, Macabeo (a local varietal) and Sauvignon Blanc. It is a blend that works – the familiar Sauvignon Blanc fresh fruit flavours are evident as well as Chardonnay's peachiness and the Macabeo adds a mineral textural quality. A great summertime wine that would cover a lot of situations. Interestingly different and thoroughly enjoyable.  


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"From the North of Spain in the wine region of Somontano, Luces Blanco is an unusual blend of Chardonnay, Macabeo and Sauvignon Blanc, a local varietal. This wine is a light colour with crisp greenish hues. It is aromatic and complex enough on the nose, evocative of fruits such as apricot, peach, apple, lime and greenery. On the palate it quickly gives a sense of being structured: it is pleasant and very clean tasting with a pleasing finish reminiscent of exotic fruits such as pineapple and mango."


4 Stars & 17+/20 Raymond Chan, November 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is very fresh and vibrant with aromas of white stonefruits entwined with nuances of herbs and nuts, with a layering of thirst-quenching minerals, unfolding a suggestion of waxiness. The aromatics build with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a fine, tight core with well-concentrated flavours of white stonefruits melded with herbs and nuts, hints of wax and mineral elements. The mouthfeel has a subtle richness that lends a degree of unctuousness, and the wine flows along a rounded line with fresh, enlivening acidity to balance. The flavours carry to a lingering finish. This is a fresh and vibrant blended white with stonefruit, herb, wax and mineral flavours on a rich palate with fresh acid balance. Serve as a aperitif and with Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. A blend of Chardonnay, Macabeo and Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards in Salas Bajas and Barbastro, given brief skin contact and cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 3.6 g/L RS".
