Unveiling the City Macabeo Blanco

In the Glass: The City Macabeo Blanco greets you with a beautiful pale straw yellow colour, boasting a clean and bright appearance. As you swirl the wine in the glass, observe the slow-forming "tears" that cascade down the sides, hinting at its viscosity and richness.

On the Nose: Prepare to be greeted by an explosion of fresh and inviting aromas. Think ripe white orchard fruits like peaches, apricots, and a touch of quince. Hints of citrus blossom and grapefruit peel add a touch of vibrancy, while subtle underlying notes of minerality hint at the wine's Herkunft (origin) in the chalky soils of Valencia.

On the Palate: The first sip of City Macabeo Blanco is pure refreshment. The wine boasts a lively acidity that cuts through the creamy texture, leaving a delightful balance on the palate. The initial burst of fruit flavours from the nose translates beautifully, offering a juicy and expressive character. Hints of spice and white pepper add a touch of complexity, lingering on the finish with a pleasant minerality.

Food Pairings for Every Occasion

The City Macabeo Blanco's versatility makes it a fantastic choice for a variety of dishes. Here are some food pairings to tantalise your taste buds:

Seafood: The wine's acidity and minerality make it a perfect match for fresh seafood dishes. Enjoy it with grilled prawns, seared scallops, or a platter of fresh oysters.

Salads: Lighter salads with grilled chicken, goat cheese, or seasonal vegetables find a wonderful complement in the City Macabeo Blanco. The wine's crispness cuts through creamy dressings, while the fruit flavours enhance the freshness of the salad ingredients.

Tapas: Explore the world of Spanish tapas with a glass of City Macabeo Blanco. Pair it with classics like Patatas Bravas, Gambas al Ajillo (garlic shrimp), or lighter tapas featuring jamón ibérico (Iberian ham) and Manchego cheese.

Spicy Food: The City Macabeo Blanco's acidity helps to tame the heat of spicy dishes. Enjoy it with curries, Thai green curry, or even a spicy Szechuan stir-fry.

Vegetarians and Vegans: Don't forget about vegetarian and vegan options! The City Macabeo Blanco pairs beautifully with roasted vegetables, creamy mushroom risotto, or lentil stews.
