    This is a great buy. At 90 pts it is well-deserved. It has great body for a white (not in wood), tropical fruit and lemon with mineral and chalky undertones. Think viogner + sauvignon blanc = albarino. Spain, Galicia region, Rias Baixas sub-region, Burgans (name of the slope) in the Salnes valley. NW coast of Spain, cool sub-region

    (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.
