VinousBrilliant straw-yellow. Dried pear, chamomile, tarragon and a suggestion of honey on the deeply perfumed nose. Fleshy, broad and dry; a mineral element adds lift and cut to concentrated orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Smoothly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and sappy, featuring a lingering hint of pear nectar. On the brawny side for a Rías Baixas but not lacking in energy.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine's classic Albariño aromas of white flowers and stone fruit are simple and nice. It feels round and true but a touch flat. Thompson grape, melon and ripe apple flavors hold steady on the finish. Drink now.
