I don't know how many wines I have had from Rueda, but I do remember one of the times I did, which was sitting with several sommeliers and one master sommelier as they were doing blind tastings.  This wine gives you muted pineapple, tame but nice citrus and a floral aspect.   There might be the slightest dash of honeysuckle to it.  This wine would go great with fish dishes, especially ceviche.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
