Adegas Valmiñor, Serra da Estrela, Rias Baixas, Galicia, 2010, Spain    
Ferran Centelles: Good consistent wine with a combination of freshness and fruit. It has personality and expressiveness although the rather creamy finish. Enjoyable and easy to drink wine. 17    
John Radford: Lovely warm, ripe summer scents, hint of honey. Rich, mature fruit, well integrated, lovely complexity, richness, structure, long, golden, just the barest hint of austerity on the finish. 18.5    
Sarah Jane Evans MW: Smoky aromas, with fresh herbs, lemon conserve. Vivid beginning to the palate, with clean, steely freshness. Fruit develops, to show ripe supple character which softens effect of acidity,  stony minerality to finish. 15
