Description Not only is today’s Spanish wine scene “among the most vibrant, dynamic and creative in the world” (Tim Atkin MW), it surely offers the best value. Exhibit A is the refreshing Orange Grove Chardonnay. It was spotted by our intrepid Buyer (‘Wine Buyer of the Year’ no less) Beth back in 2013, when she was on a scouting mission in Valencia. This lovely corner of Spain, known as ‘Madrid by the sea’, boasts orange groves and paddy fields – hence the paella – and, of course, vineyards. And they’re not all red. Chardonnay is very much back in fashion (here and everywhere else) and when you taste this, you’ll appreciate why. Laden with apple, citrus, pear, melon and quince character, this creamy wine is delightful on its own or with fresh seafood.
