Even though Pazo De Monterrey was not intended for the Syrah tasting, I think it well-deserves a blog post. This wine is a white Spanish blend called Monterrei. One of the first things said of this wine was the price point – it is $4.00. When I first heard this, I thought that this wine couldn’t be good. However, like the event we did called “Great Wines that won’t Break the Budget,” I was pleasantly surprised.
It was an extremely interesting white wine. In my opinion, in wasn’t that acidic at all. The smell was sweet of honey, yet sour of musk. I was a little nervous to taste it judging off the smell. But the taste was amazing. For there to be this many scents (and flavors), I felt like the Monterrei was very smooth tasting. Because of the great price point, I even bought a bottle for myself.
