This white wine from our December 2020 box is a lovely wine. Fennel, rose, white flowers and peach all hit you on the nose. There's more to this than meets the eye (or nose), which reflects the experimental nature of Sifer Wines. Ephraim and his wife like to make single varietal wine so that people can see all the qualities and characteristics that just one grape can achieve. The grape here, Macabeo (also known as virus in Rioja) is an ancient grape variety that is also the main grape in making Cava. Like chardonnay, it's a relatively neutral variety, taking on different styles.
