Vinous 90 (raised in stainless steel tanks, with 15 percent of the wine going through malolactic fermentation) Light bright yellow. Mineral-tinged lime and melon aromas, along with suggestions of ginger and lemon pith. Sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors show very good depth, focus and lift thanks to a spine of tangy acidity. Finishes minerally and quite long, leaving behind bitter pear skin and lime pith notes.

The Wine Enthusiast 90 Aromas of white flowers, stone fruits and lees are typical of well-made Albariño. A juicy, elegant palate with a mix of citrus and stone-fruit flavors is lasting, with a hint of pithy character coming up on the finish.

Wine & Spirits Magazine 89 Notes of stones and spices fill this complex and deliciously refreshing albariño. The wine is built on tense acidity that firms the texture and drives the mineral notes through the end.
