Saludas 2009 Vino de la Tierra White - ~$3

Unlike its red counterpart, the white version of Saludas offers no indication of grape varietal. My guess is that there's a few a grapes in the mix here, and that Viura might be playing a leading role.

This wine is quite pale in the glass, almost transparent. The nose gives up green apple and lemon-lime, and these notes follow through in the mouth, closing out with a limey, slightly harsh astringency. It's not unlike a Vinho Verde but without the effervescence and with a bit too much green sourness on the finish.

I'd love to see Fresh & Easy bring in a good Vinho Verde, but I doubt that they could offer it at ~$3. And if they did offer such a wine, well, it'd likely be somewhat underwhelming and best served well chilled.
