|87||Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar||Pale straw. Fresh pear, melon and lichee aromas are brightened by white flowers and nutmeg. Frothy and deep in sweet tropical fruit flavors but nicely energized by mineral and spice qualities that carry into the finish. A touch short but plenty fresh and vibrant. Serve this with fresh fruit as a mid-course or simple dessert.

|86||The Wine Advocate||The non-vintage Flare is Spain’s answer to Moscato d’Asti. Light-bodied, with only 7.5% alcohol, this moderately sweet bubbly is the ideal breakfast wine or guzzle it with gusto on a hot summer day. Consume it over the next 6-12 months.|

From Valencia we would expect oranges, and this wine delivers with enticing citrus and exotic spices.
|San Francisco Chronicle||A relatively dry effort from near the eastern Spanish coast that should lend itself to savory fare. The sweet notes are quiet; it's more steely, with orange blossom and cassia flavors. A floral quality lingers throughout. Put it with eggs and chorizo.|
