Tasting Notes

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.
Winemaker

The 2016 is a beautifully aromatic wine with notes of peach, white apples and clean citrus fruits. The characters on the nose are reflected on the palate which shows lovely complexity of ripe citrus fruits. It retains great freshness thanks to well-integrated citrus acidity. Perfect to be enjoyed on its own, it would make an ideal accompaniment to seafood as well as salads and cheeses.

Reviews & Scores

This is so pure, pretty and bright. It has a lively citrus core (lemons and tangerines) with a hint of tropical fruit (passionfruit and pineapple), but never so much that it intrudes on the freshness. The acidity is quite lively, and it combines on the finish with a mouthwatering saline character. This is pure and very treble heavy, with lots of vitality yet no lack of flavour. Benchmark Albariño.
Jamie Goode


Bright mid-yellow, nose of yellow summer fruits with a briny edge, satisfyingly full on the palate with the typical Albarino zesty acidity, more weight than expected but no heaviness, just more fruit, good now but can be kept for a year or two.
