Bodegas Luzón Blanco 2014 (3.7/5)

Fermented at low temperature for 15 days, then aged in new oak barrels (on the lees) for 50 days for added complexity.
It appears clear, pale lemon, with watery rim. 

On the nose it's clean offering, with medium+ intensity, notes of ripe white flat peaches, white flowers and citrus, some subtle vanilla/toast. Very fresh and very chardonnay-like.

On the palate is dry, med(-) alcohol (11.5% from the label), med(-) acidity, med(-) body, very smooth mid palate and decent finish. Seriously quaffable.

Good quality, Over-achiever for the price tag (less than $10). Drink Now. 70% Macabeo (Viura) 30%Chardonnay, Jumilla, Spain.

I think many will like its refreshing approachability. Perfect for a summer afternoon, served on its own.
