Edalo Blanco, Huelva, Spain
A perfect summer white wine from the coastal region of Huelva in Andalusia, Spain. We are talking a white wine to be drunk with seafood that the fisherman have brought in that afternoon.
A fresh, light wine with good acidity and a tropical character of pineapple, melon and peach.
“The Édalo comes from Huelva, in the far south of Spain, right beside the Portuguese border. The cooling Atlantic winds make for a delicate light dry wine, made from the local Zalema grape. Argentine made from the Torrontés grape can sometimes be a little too aromatic and rich, but in the wine below, the inclusion of 15 per cent Riesling adds a lovely vibrancy to the aromas and fleshy fruit of the Torrontés. This is one of my favourite summer (and winter) white wines”.
“Lightly herbal nose with fresh green apple and pineapple fruits, finishing dry. An old favourite revisited at a party recently, on a mild summer’s day, it made a perfect aperitif, and also later with summery salads including salmon” – John Wilson, Irish Times
