Trampal Pardina 2005

A very light white wine

This Spanish wine is made from 100% Pardina, an Italian grape variety, a genetic mix of the varieties Sciamblese and Sultania nera. It comes from Extremadura in southwest Spain. This was a very light and fruity white wine, maybe too light.

This wine was dead cheap, by Norwegian standard, costing a little more than €7. I served it to a pungent creole fish soup. This wine was definetely not a match. If you are going to enjoy it, do so with some strawberries, or serve it ice cold on a hot summers day. It may be better then. This was however the only time it will be served by my table.

Coming up April 5th
