I guess my palate is changing and I need to admit that I am more and more attracted by fresh, crisp, vivid and mineral whites and earthy, somewhat rustic, lighter reds than I ever been before.
For the whites, during winter, I guess I could switch to big woody Chardonnay or even to Viognier, but I rather drink fresh Galician, Loire Valley and Northern Italy whites (and many others crisp and bright whites).
2007 Can Feixes Blanc Selecció Penedès is at the same time complex and aromatic, yet light on its feet, easy to drink and inviting, full of freshness and minerality. It boasts aromas of fresh squeezed lemon, green apple, white blossom and minerals. Sharp and focus from beginning to end, it could be compared to a Muscadet in texture, yet it has more length and depth. Meant to be consumed young and fresh, this vivid wine will be great as an aperitif with light appetizers, pan seared fish with lemon juice and olive oil, and grilled chicken.
