Tasting notes


Restrained example of Albarino, with green, refreshing acidity and a long, stony finish. Well made and full of green peaches, green apple and white flowers. Very food friendly wine that can be aged up to three years (Ferran Cetelles). Summer hedgerow aromas with hints of honeysuckle. Lovely, rich, crunchy fruit with a delicious mid-palate and a long, golden finish; just a little bit dry on the finish (John Radford). Leafy, grassy aromatics with white peach fruit. Vibrant acidity, with lime curd and lemon zest flavours. Supple, creamy palate, with white peaches and ginger. Long and complex (Sarah Jane Evans MW). Alc: 12.5%. Drink 2012-2015. 18.5pts/20 (95pts/100)
