First whiff almost medicinal which blew off. I decanted half and kept half in the bottle to compare. Tasted from the bottle first. Aromas of quince, peach,grapefruit and a touch of honey. On the palate - WOW - mouthfilling of profound intensity - honey and toffee notes with a refreshing twist of grapefruit to finish off. A full bodied rich white made up of 50% Grenache Blanc and 50% Clairette. Unctuous yet with vibrant energy and enough acid to stop it being blowsy. Great winemaking. Equally as enjoyable as a mature Grand Cru White Burgundy - My first Rayas Blanc and it was a stunning experience. One of the whites of the year! Then I tried the half that had been decanted and it had a little of that vibrant energy decanted out of it. To compare scores: 98 straight out of the bottle and 96 for the decanted version. — 7 days ago
WOW! Gorgeous wine. Medium-light bodied, light tannins, but so layered and so much fruit. Somehow the intense fruit doesn’t unbalance a subtle spice and a hint of green. Shockingly good. — 10 hours ago

This is amazing Garnacha, soft and delicious, could be like Rayas, same translucent colour, taste is so complex, all kinds of berries and still a fresh afterglow🙏 — 3 months ago
Almost 30 yrs old and still rocking. Rich and complex still quite fruity and balanced. — 8 days ago
Nose of lychee, lime, almond shell, and sea breeze.
Melon, green apple, lemon, lime, and a touch of peach on the finish. Medium acidity with a touch of lingering alcohol heat.
I don't drink a lot of Spanish whites, but I think I should start! Tasty wine and nice value. — 10 days ago
