If you haven't realized it by now, I tend to go to Canal's in Pennsauken a lot when I go for new wines, and as they have basically reorganized their wine section, I saw this interesting bottle staring at me from one of the end caps [of the shelves].

What made me purchase it was that it talked about the flavor hints of pear and quince, Pears are a favorite of my mom's and I remember her telling the story of putting a raw Quince in her mouth.

The wine itself has some nice tropical flavors, but it's the quince piece that gives it an interesting acidity. This being a Spanish wine, it goes best with freshly caught seafood, or seafood dishes like paella,

I only gave this wine an 8 because I have no other Viuras to compare it too.
