Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) This is one of this co-op's best-balanced, easy-to-like bottlings we can remember. The bouquet is clean as a whistile, with pear, apple and slate. Graceful on the palate, with citrus and green apple flavors. A little lim carves shape into the long finish.

    (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.
