Plenty of white wine in this red wine. It's a blend of Muscat d'Alexandrie (the more aromatic Muscat) and a grape called Mando. Here's a little about Mando: It is an indigenous Catalan varietal that has been recovered by Mas Candi. After the phylloxera 120 years ago; many vineyards were replanted with grape varieties more profitable at the expense of others who were of high quality but did not produce enough to be financially viable. At Mas Candi they have been, and still are, working towards the recovery of these forgotten varieties). 

The wine is all around light -- light bodied, lightly bitter, lightly red fruited, and lightly aromatic.
