Winemaker's Notes:

This is a stellar bottling of Acero, with bright fruit in the nose reminiscent of key lime and tangerine harmonizing with mineral and floral notes. On the palate it is fresh and vibrant, with great balance, full flavors and a dry, long finish. It is easy to drink and perfect with foods like tapas and light dishes.
