The second wine from the Bodegas Frontonio wine tasting at Madrid & Darracott. Another white from the Frontonio collection this time, named after the patron saint of Épila a town in Valdejalón where the wine is from. Made primarily from Macabeo with small amounts of Viognier.
This wine is not matured in wood but has some of the character of wood as it has been left with the particulates for a while to give it some oomph. This wine will age well and will be best in another 2-3 years. Their website recommends the 2016 vintage.
It has a pale to medium straw colour with a light scent of sharp green apple, a bit of pear drop and the scent you get from burnt matches or firecrackers.
A lighter more subtle wine than the last one and refreshingly clean. Dry, light body, medium acidity but balanced so not as noticeable. Short clean finished.
In flavour I get a bit of pear drop and the a hint of the burnt matches. Then the sharp green apple.
Another good wine that I really enjoyed.
