Started by the Creixell family in 1991. Produced with the fruit from their 12-hectare estate in Valle del Salnes. Vivid straw yellow with citrus and stone fruit aromas and herb notes. The palate shows apple and grapefruit flavors, crisp with floral and mineral tones. Medium finish, well balanced, generous acidity on a soft ending. Easy drinking. Very nice!

Soft and thinner quality than their previous Albarino. The lemon lime fruit peel is very delicate. Saline is very soft and refined, nice minerality, but a little lacking on acidity and finish

Tasted Blind. Pretty close. Need to drink more Spanish whites. Wet stone, kinda tropical but citrus'y lemon. Albariño/Pinot Grigio'ish More neutral than I want it to be...
