Tasting notes

Ferran Centelles

Really creamy style of Albariño with presence of oak. A very good combination of lees character in mouth and refreshing acidity. Long peachy finish that shows good potential for ageing for 2-3 years.

Warm, ripe, mature, some soft oaky notes. Rich fruit, warm oak, nicely balanced, rich fruit finish.

95 / 100 18.5 / 20

Floral, citrus, vanilla aroma. Punchy acidity underneath broad mineral palate; style majors on texture rather than fruit. Long, complex.

88 / 100 16.5 / 20
