Bodegas As Laxas, Laxas, Rias Baixas, Galicia, 2011, Spain    
Ferran Centelles: Well-made wine, with simple fruit but pleasant. It combines fruit and body. Very peachy palate.    15.5    
John Radford: Pale straw.  Very soft, subtle fruit, hint of balsamic, mature. Yes! Lovely balance, freshness, and that 'crunchy' green-plum fruit, long finish. Excellent.  18.5    
Sarah Jane Evans MW: Sweaty and a little confected, subtly floral. Ripe, off-dry, faintest note of aniseed amid the golden fruits. Cooked fruit diminishes sense of freshness. 14.5
