As I researched Destino Blanco, I found that it was extremely hard to find out anything about the wine. Even the website for Vinos y Bodegas Gallegas, the producer, has no information about it that I could find. Hence, the informational aspect of this entry may seem a little skimpy. I apologize for that, and I invite you to leave any comments which may shed some light on this lovely and affordable wine.
There are a few bits of knowledge I was able to come across. It's produced in Galicia, on Spain's northwestern coast. It's 11% abv and it costs a paltry $7. Also, it is not to be confused with the Napa Valley boutique winery called Destino. The Gallegas export manager, Hay Sprunken, informs me the wine is 100% Airén, a popular grape in Spain, although I understand the acreage devoted to it is dwindling in favor of other grapes like Tempranillo.
First you'll notice the pale golden color. Then the aromatics. The nose sports a floral component mixed with wet rocks. There are a lot of minerals apparent in the aroma, and they carry over onto the palate.
There is no oak influence, so I would assume this to be a wine fermented in stainless steel. The taste is a bit tart, but very clean and refreshing. Citrus notes mix with the minerals and produce a satisfying flavor profile which is backed up by a nice acidity. A slight floral sense is present and lingers in the finish.
Destino Blanco may be a trifle hard to find, but if you do find it, snap up some for the summer months ahead. I found mine at Wine Expo in Santa Monica. It may become a standard at your place, like it has at mine.
