It's always interesting when the descriptions of wines on
their back labels talk of melons and other fruits. In fact,
most of them seem downright lies. Most interestingly, this
wine has no mention of melons on the back label. However,
this wine has the most amazing combination of melons flavors
that I have ever had in a wine. Not saying that I haven't
had wonderful melon tastes before, but this one was so
sublime in its decadence, and delectably reminiscent of a
great cupcake as well.
This is the third Oveja Negra wine that I have tasted;
there is one more.
This wine is composed of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15%
Carmenere, which is truly an interesting mixture, since
Carmenere is a red grape. In this, the latter brings down
the high citrus of the former and imbues it with just a
little bit of red fruit essence that smooths it out
wonderfully, bringing up a little bit of papaya.
It's been a minute since a wine has grabbed me like this,
and honestly, I didn't expect it at all. This is a wine to
be enjoyed slowly, and appreciated in a nice mode of ease.
The taste grows and is warming, and the finish is pleasant
and mellow. This is a classic white, and I am waiting to
see what they will come up with next.
