This is a ridiculous value and the 2017 vintage is stunning. Rich, round fruit in the mid palate, intense concentration and tremendous finesse throughout. Finishes with a mineral streak that is delightful. Do yourself a favor and serve this in large Burgundy bowls which greatly enhance the ripe peach, mango and citrus blossom character in this lovely wine.

Great white Rioja. Nothing much on the nose but great crisp apple and pineapple on the mouth. Slight oak representative of its barrel aging!

Light yellow color with tropical and stone fruit aromas with floral scents. Palate shows ripe peaches and melons with some fig nuances. The finish is a bit tight with big acidity and good balance. This medium body wine had essence of toast on an ending that lasted long. Great value. Tasting Sample.

A pleasant quaffer. Perfect as a warm-up before the main event.
