Winemaker's Notes

Pale gold. Bright, minty, stony aromas of fresh citrus and pear kissed by ginger. Firm and dry, with bright orange and lemon flavors and a juicy tone to the finish. Almost gentle in the context of Albarino.

Critical Acclaim

"Light yellow-gold. Lemon zest, pear and honeysuckle on the nose. Juicy citrus and bitter pit and orchard fruit flavors are firmed by dusty minerals, which add refreshing lift and incisive character. Dry, mineral-driven and pure, with impressive finishing clarity and minerality. This would work beautifully with fresh shellfish."
