Sin Fronteras Dos Mujeres 2013
Drinking this blend of albarino and grenache blanc from winemaker Macario Montoya brought to mind scraggly bushes laden with berries and rooted in the thin, loamy soil of a cliffside or sandy hill—manzanita, maybe. Whatever it is, the slightest breeze threatens to uproot it, but the bush holds tight and doesn’t let go.
Which is to say the minerality of this wine comes through strong in the finish, but it still needs more depth of flavor. My Quini profile:
Other Winos’ Thoughts
Light, fruity, and refreshing. Faintly sweet, goes well with or without food. Very nice.
Loved this one. Light, but had some body. Little dry and grassy, but not too much. Great with summer food. Love the screw top. Will be looking forward to more from this winemaker.
Big citrus notes, a touch of pear, then as it opens a wink of vanilla. Found it to be a nice summer sipper.
This is another NakedWines.Com bottle, but it’s no longer available for sale. I’m looking forward to trying Montoya’s red wines soon, though. And just because you can’t purchase this wine doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of NakedWines.Com’s $100 off voucher!
I just made my first purchase as an Angel with NakedWines.Com, and let me tell you, between the two free bottles I received in my second shipment of wine and that I only paid 60 additional dollars for a case with the funds I’d already banked, it does feel like a deal. Not sure that it genuinely is yet or not, but tasting my way through all these new reds will help me determine that. I’ve had worse tasks.

I’ve been an Angel for approximately 30 days now and that case I just mentioned was my first purchase as one. And yes, if you make a purchase through those ads, I’ll make a commission, but all the funds I’m spending on NakedWines.Com are my own (obligatory disclosure).
