Lopez de Heredia, Viña Gravonia Blanco, Rioja Crianza, Spain 2005
Layered and complex with notes of herbs and quince, this wine is full of personality. The nuttiness on the palate is balanced by fresh acidity and complemented by jasmine. It’s made in an oxidative style, but don’t be put off – it’s a profound white that’s perfect for jamon.
