Mas Codina Macabeo - 2010
Definite presence of oak on the nose with rich caramel notes as well as notes of fresh-cut grass and a lemon squeeze. The white blend hits your palate crisp and clean and transforms into a silky lemon cream pie and then slowly melts down your throat into oblivion. A very nice all around blend but some minor rough notes on the top of the palate during the finish. Surprising for a wine that has undergone some apparent malolactic fermentation.
Pair with a pasta pomodoro with a fresh crostini brushed with fresh olive oil and garlic.
