2011 La Casa de Sitios de Bodega, Sauvignon Blanc, Rueda

( £6.49, 13%, The Co-operative )

Spain is often overlooked when people are looking for new sources of Sauvignon Blanc, but the cool (comparatively speakig) region of Rueda has been making some very drinkable examples since the 1980s. This good value quaffer is a case in point: stony and fresh with notes of beeswax, honey and gooseberry.
