I picked up this dry white wine from the little-known macabeo grape at a local store on the strength of the reputation of its importer, Kysela Pere & Fils. I wasn't disappointed. It's a spectacular value — rich, minerally and gripping. Its complex flavors of pine, lime and tropical fruit go far beyond my expectations in a 10-buck wine. Supplies of the 2009 may be low, but the 2010 is expected soon. I'll be in line for a case of it.
