Tasting: Albariño

The wine has a marked lees character that dose not leave the fruit to shine. It needs very severe oxygenation to breath. On the mouth it has a very good combination of creaminess, fruit and acidity and a long green fruits finish. A great wine to take with time and patience but slightly closed at this moment.

Tasting: Albariño

Nice, savoury, slightly oaky but big fruit on fore, crisp acidity, bright greengage fruit, delicious.

Tasting: Albariño

Pungent aromas, a bland of grassiness, orange blossom. Slightly reduced. Generous palate of oranges, hint of ginger and cinnamon, and a vivid dart of citrus acidity. Good persistent finish.
