Laidi Sobre Lias - Carinena Blanco
A great white wine and exceptional value for money. This is a blend of 6o% Grenache Blanco (white Grenache) and 40% Chardonnay that has a really fresh and fruity bouquet with mineral hints. Very easy on the palate with excellent structure and with excellent length too. Sobre Lias means "Sur Lie" meaning it was aged on the sediments post fermentation. This has given a slightly creamy mouthfeel. A superb little wine. At it's best with fish and seafood dishes but ideal also simply by itself. They are vegan friendly too!

Why we like this wine
White wines at the lower end of the price spectrum often lack complexity and depth of flavour. None of that here with the fruit shining through every time you return to the glass but with each mouthful there is a subtle change of flavour. It's not only the complexity but it's ability to partner foods of many styles make it almost chameleon like.
