Historically the noble moscatel (muscat) grape in Spain has been over cropped, overworked and pressed into service in everything from dull dry whites to dull sweet whites. The Saleta, though, has all the dullness of a billonaire's birthday bash. Apricot, peach and blossom notes overlay the fresh tangy sauvignon notes to give a wine that's ripe and satisfying, yet ripe and clean.

This is an inspired blend of aromatic, peachy moscatel, countered by sauvignon blanc which adds some freshness and acidity without compromising the overall soft, easy-going nature of this wine.

... comes from coastal vineyards near Alicante in Spain, where the vineyards rise from the Mediterranean. The grapes are mainly the aromatic moscatel de alejandria, with 15 % sauvignon blanc in the blend. The hot, humid Mediterranean weather is perfect for moscatel, and the sea breezes help to produce richly aromatic, ripe grapes with a crisp acidity. A thoroughly modern Spanish white wine, made in a state-of-the-art winery, fresh, crisp, lively and aromatic. Fabulous aperitif or with a Thai green curry.

Artiga

Founded in 2002, Artiga has a ‘new world’, modern approach to wine. The company was created by Martí Quer when he returned to his native Spain after spending several years as a head sommelier in New York, and he has spent many years building good relationships with growers to ensure only high quality grapes are used. These are sourced from four DOs – Alicante, Jumilla, La Mancha and Campo de Borja – and vinified using state-of-the-art wineries in these regions.

The wine we buy from Artiga is Saleta, and the grapes for this (mostly moscatel, with around 15% sauvignon blanc) come from coastal vineyards in La Marina, the sub-zone of Alicante where the vineyards rise from the Mediterranean Sea.

The hot, humid Mediterranean weather is perfect for moscatel, and the sea breezes help to produce richly aromatic, ripe grapes with a crisp acidity. The soils are mainly limestone, with some areas of alluvial clay left by the rivers flowing towards the coast.

Scottish-born winemaker Pamela Geddes, who learned her craft in Australia, selects only the healthiest grapes, which ensures a balanced wine, but also means production quantities are limited according the quality of each vintage.

Fermentation occurs in stainless-steel tanks at cool temperatures, with no oak contact and an early bottling, which best captures the fresh, aromatic character of the moscatel grape.

This blend of moscatel and sauvignon combines richness, succulence, and refreshment in a glorious form and is a wine I keep coming back to. The nose is all peaches, apple blossom, and honey, while the palate is a delicious combination of pears, grapes, and tangy citrus. Perfect with everything from a green salad to white meats, I’ll be seeing a lot of this, this summer.

Best white wine of 2021 under £10: ferociously crisp, fabulously fresh and unctuously heady ... An extravagantly floral bouquet leads to a lively palate, full of citrus and orchard fruit flavours before a brisk, refreshing finish. One for simple trout or salmon and some wintry sunshine to brighten these straitened and challenging days.
