Review date: June 7, 2016

Wine Review: This almost clear colored Spanish white wine is delightful and a great value. It opens with a floral and Bosc pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty Bosc pear with notes of gentle minerality and light lime. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This wine would pair well with spring rolls. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bracing aromas of orange zest, quinine, ginger and chalky minerals Juicy, dry and focused, offering lively citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of white pepper. Fleshes out on the clinging finish, which echoes the gingery note.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
