Wine Details







Wine Description

A classic albariño, this velvety wine is almost slick on the palate, smooth and serious but with a refreshing and perfectly balanced level of acidity, and intensely aromatic.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) APPEARANCE A bright greenish yellow colour with golden highlights. NOSE A uniquely fruity aroma where the variety is clearly appreciated, highlighting hints of ripe apples, apricots, and peach aromas. PALATE In the mouth, it is rich, mellow and well-balanced. The aftertaste is fully rounded and off dry on the palate with juicy fruit flavours, clean acidity and a long, mineral-dominated finish.

    (From 2010 Vintage) An explosively exotic nose of dried apricots, ripe peaches, and honeysuckle is followed by a medium-bodied wine with delicious fruit and purity. Completely tank-fermented and aged, this is Spainrsquo;s answer to Francersquo;s exotic, honeyed wines from Cordrieu. Sadly, the 1998 vintage produced an extremely small crop because of spring frosts. This offering, the ideal Spanish aperitif, or a wine to serve with a multitude of seafood dishes, should be consumed during its first year because of its fragile perfume.
