Light, bright yellow. Pear and yellow plum aromas are lifted by a touch of lemon zest. A fleshy, dry midweight that offers plump orchard fruit flavors accented by notes of bitter herbs and dried citrus fruits. Finishes with a bit of heat and good cling. This variety, a specialty of Spain's Extramadura region, is also known as pardillo.
