Finca San Blas, Vino Dulce, Utiel Requena, Mainland Spain, Spain, 2013
Platinum - Best in Show: Best Sweet over £15
50% Merseguera, 50% Chardonnay
Beautifully honeyed and ripe Sauternes-like nose of peach, grape seed, pineapple, passion fruit, saffron, marzipan and tangy marmalade notes. The brilliant jab of wonderfully fresh acidity on the palate cuts through the honey and spice, butterscotch, mango and toffee and leads to a great length.
