On the nose, beeswax, honeycomb, golden apple, wet stone. On the palate, mouthfilling and expansive. Ripe apple and pear are framed by stony minerals, lambswool and flowers. Beautifully balanced between fruit and mineral, weight and acidity. Long, mouthwatering finish. With its elusive combination of weight and acidity, Candea Blanco is equally at home with seafood or poultry. Grilled whole fish with a chimichurri sauce, or a roast chicken with root vegetables and a bitter green.

Wine AdvocateThe white 2016 Candea Blanco is a blend of equal parts Dona Blanca, Verdello and Treixadura from 20-year-old vineyards in the village of Tamagos at 370 meters in altitude on clay soils. It fermented at low temperature in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and was kept with the lees for one year, but the lees were not stirred. This has the austere profile of the cooler vintages, where the whites from Monterrei excel and show the rocky minerality. This is more about soils than grapes, and the palate also reveals the texture. This is incredible for the price. 6,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018. There is no 2017 of this white, as they lost the grapes as a result of the killer frost that year. So, it will come back with 2018.
