Winemaker's Notes

Fresh fruit aromas of apricot and peach slices with notes of lemon and green apple. Pretty notes of honey and wet nutmeg, and the mouth is round, clean, and pleasant with baked apple, honey, and lemon.

Critical Acclaim

"Very fresh and classy. Aromatic white flowers, green fruit and pineapple. Lemon curd, zesty charm, rich supple palate, balanced by gentle grip and fine mineral notes with a salty hint. Long, fresh finish. "
94 Points

"Pale yellow. Ripe orange, pear and nectarine aromas are complicated by notes of white pepper, herbs and honeysuckle. Pliant, expansive orchard and citrus fruit flavors show very good depth and energy, with a late note of bitter quinine adding grip. Finishes firm and long, with lingering spiciness and tangy minerality."
92 Points

"Clean, crisp, cut, this has a minerally white-fruit nose. It’s elegant and chiseled on the palate, with bright peach and nectarine flavors that carry onto a tight, dry, flinty finish. An elegant, lifted Albariño with a lightness of being."
90 Points
