Bouza do Rei, Castel de Bouza, Rias Baixas, Galicia, 2011, Spain    
Ferran Centelles: Lightly spirity nose. Very soft pleasant mouth-feel with a good balance with the refreshing acidity. A very fruity and easy to enjoy example of Albariño. It has a peachy fruity finish. 15    
John Radford: Very pale straw. Lovely 'spirity' start but a bit reductive but clean on the palate with 'dark green' fruits, some richness on the mid but austere on the finish and the reduction returns. Ultimately not quite clean. 14    
Sarah Jane Evans MW: A little sweaty, lightly confected fruit rich ripe palate, some acidity shines through; cooked Brimley apple fruit, with a note of sweet spice.  Finishes dry, with a note of chalk. 16
