This is an evolved Albariño but still keeps freshness and length. Very interesting wine with a mature palate which is a refreshing combination of creaminess and freshness. SJE -

Lovely rich, ripe, slightly gamey but very complex nose. Beautifully balanced, rich green plum fruit fresh acidity, drinking splendidly. Now!

Light gold with yellow. Bold, forward, creamy, vanilla, peaches. Brilliantly vibrant acidity, very youthful, ripe but piercing, carries through to a long penetrating finish. Notes of oranges, vanilla, yellow peaches. Full bodied and fresh.
