More about this wine from Rioja, Spain
Leza García is a family-owned winemaking operation in Spain’s famous Rioja region. With hot days and cold nights, these vineyards are tended to constantly, with careful pruning and attention given to the vines throughout the growing process. This wine is made entirely from the Viura grape (also known as Macabeo), and is the most widely planted white varietal in Rioja. It is also the main grape used to make Cava, the deliciously dry Spanish sparkling wine.

On the palate here you get a heavier mouthfeel that makes your soul feel like it’s been wrapped up in Egyptian cotton sheets. White flowers lace the overripe juice smattered yellow fruit. The slightest touch of sweet baking spice and lemon curd. Overall a very elegant and sophisticated wine.

There's a lot of deliciously biting acid in this burger, but this fruity white acts as nice counter-balance.
