Expert Reviews

91 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2013

(90% viura and 10% malvasia, fermented in new French oak, where it then spends three months on its lees):  Green-tinged gold.  Powerful aromas of honeydew melon, orange zest and toasty lees.  Sappy, round and concentrated, offering intense melon, citrus fruit and spicecake flavors and a slow-building vanilla quality.  Finishes smooth and long, with mounting spiciness and a touch of fennel.
