2008 Con Class Rueda

With crystal clear, green-gold color this wine looked wonderful in the glass.  Sharp, tart nose of peach and nectarine.  Medium body with super acidity.  Flavors of nectarine mixed with citrus.  Fruity and sharp on the finish.  The previous two vintages of this wine were good, but this one seems better.  One could do a lot worse for $12.  11.5% alcohol.

There was a trout  fillet which was pan seared in olive oil and butter.  Lemon juice was added to make the pan sauce.  Simple, easy, and great with the wine.
