Bodegas Mustiguillo 2019 'Mestizaje' Blanc, El Terrerazo, Spain

In the late 1990’s, Toni Sarrion began a one man crusade to save the  indigenous variety Bobal and coax it from obscurity and rusticity to the  forefront of truly world class wines.  Ever evolving and pushing the  quality level forward, Mustiguillo has moved away from the use of overt  American oak as seen in earlier vintages in favor of concrete and French  oak for wines of finesse & balance, realizing the potential of  Bobal from the unique terroir of El Terrerazo.  Mustiguillo was  recognized for their extraordinary efforts by Wine & Spirits as one  of the Top 100 Wineries of 2012.

Winemaker: Toni Sarrion 

Farming: Organic certified

Grapes: 65% Merseguera, 24% Viognier & 11% Malvasia

Terroir: The Vino de Pago El Terrerazo was granted to Mustiguillo in 2010 - a  part of the Grandes Pagos de España organization that is dedicated to  upholding and promoting very high quality single estate wines. At an altitude of 800-824 meters, the estate is comprised of 89 hectares of  contiguous vineyards on primarily limestone soils. The climate is Mediterranean with a strong continental influence with drastic diurnal  shifts in temperature and contrasting winds from the sea to the east and  hot La Mancha to the west. From the almost lost indigenous variety, Merseguera, these estate vines are grown organically at Finca Calvestra, at over 900 meters altitude. These vines were grafted onto existing Bobal vines (of over 40 years) where the Bobal could not reach maturity due to the altitude

Vinification: Native yeast fermentation in tank and aged sur lies in stainless steel.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting Notes: A crisp, delightful wine! The Viognier is immediately apparent on the nose with apricot, tropical fruit and honey while underlying notes of white peach, scented flowers and citrus hints creep in from the Merseguera. The tightwire balance between the fleshy Viognier/Malvasia and taut Merseguera continue with a fresh, fruity and floral attack and an unctuous mid palate that is kept in check by bracing acidity. Truly one of a kind, Mestizaje shows its unique personality is this pleasant, crispy, imminently friendly wine
