This is made from the Albillo grape just a bit east of Madrid in Manchuela.  Light white gold in color.  The nose is interesting.  Waxy with chamomile tea and slight lemony notes.  On the palate, this is a fuller bodied white.  Slightly oily texture but lacking a lot of acidity.  Nice apple notes with some minerality.  Also a cinnamon quality on the finish which is interesting.  Long finish.  A very enjoyable wine and a nice change of pace.  This will work well with a wide variety of foods.  No idea on how well this grape ages.
