Beautiful lemon & white floral nose. Fresh ripe lemon pulp & peel, underripe pineapple, orange blossoms, saline, super soft minerals and a nice lemony finish.

Superb complex nose. Waxy, nutty, with red Apple and nectarine and orange blossom. Buttered toast. Wonderful texture, good acidity, creamy, savoury, white truffle, light phenolics giving a ripe Apple skin note. Superb

Straw color with peach, and pear aromas. On the pallet it is racy with good acidity and a “ying-yang” counterbalance of sweet honeydew melon with a decent finish tied to hints of dry almonds. Bold, full bodied white Rioja; to my surprise it has aged pretty well. It’s a tasting well worth the price of exploration.

Välbyggt och bra utvecklad vit Rioja i medelfyllig lite mer samtida stil. Kokos, orkidé, saffran, gula äpplen, örter, grillad citron, vanilj.

Saltaire and touch of peach on the nose. Crisp, mineral, hint of white grapefruit and sweet onion. Like a thick, full-in-the-mouth Chablis in a slinky evening dress. 2014 vintage.
