(2019) Once again The Daily Drinker have delivered a 'first' for me: a wine made from the Cayetana Blanca variety, never tasted by me before, and a speciality of the Extremadura region near the Portuguese border in the southwest of Spain. It's Spanish and it's white, but forget the feathery charms of Albariño - the volume here is turned up much higher, with its gold-green colour and 14% alcohol, and fruit-filled nose of pear and herbs, something nutty and yet with a zip of lime zest too. In the mouth sweet, ripe fruit dominates, with weight and substantial body, flooding with bittersweet orange and juicy pear, excellent acidity and grip, and a really long, focused finish that tapers to a fine but confident, concentrated point. Terrific and different - what more could you want? £12.60 to Daily Drinker club members.
