Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of lime, must and kiwi, together with the classic plant-like qualities of Verdejo. Beautifully fresh, with a long and dry finish.

Critical Acclaim

"(about 12% of this wine was fermented in French oak, the rest in stainless steel): Pale yellow. Intensely perfumed aromas of lemongrass, lime, quince, smoky minerals and fresh herbs. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors are deepened by peach pit and floral tones and braced by tangy acidity. Fills out nicely on the finish, picking up a note of bitter pear skin and showing excellent persistence and lingering minerality. The vines that produced this wine are reportedly between 29 and 90 years old."
