Oroya white wine 2005 Created For Sushi
An interesting blend and concept: The winemaker, Yoko Sato is Japanese and produces this blend of 60% Alren, 30% Macabeo and 10% Muscat grapes for Vino De La Tierra De Castilla, Spain and was specifically created to pair well with sushi. The label sports a clean and simple design of Japanese characters (letters), and the aromas and flavors follow suit. Very light straw in color, on the nose are floral notes with a mild minerality and lemon on the palate. Very nicely balanced. I actually did have it with sushi and I have to admit it really works. In the $10 range.
