Pale lemon color with aromas of ripe tropical fruits with grassy and floral notes. On the palate a fresh lively fruity character with tropical and citrus flavors and some dried herb notes. Good acidity and balance, not overly complex ending with soft round herb fruit character.

Lemon custard/preserved lemon and green apple nose. Bright golden, not very oxidized at all, just a gentle marcona almond note. Such a silken texture on the palate, weightless and decadent, almost Chablisien character. Knockout minerality and a salty long finish.

Cheap, clean, and slightly off dry. Perfect for charcuterie, salty and smoky things

Pleasant easy going mineral and fresh, relatively on the light side, a touch of citrus, grape fruit, lots of minerals, medium bicycle crisp finish. My score 85, drink to 2019

I thought this was delicious. Nutty,lemon, even an oyster shell salinity note. A dream with skordalia and boquerones toast
