2010 Rias Baixas. The perfume of this white wine are fresh and intense, delivering notes of mandarin, grapefrui and citrus as well as light mineral hints. Zesty flavors fill the mouth with vibrant citrus fruit and a crisp acidity. It exudes freshness and an elegant, long finish with lingering tastes. Andy's Notes: There are quite a few words that could be used to describe this wine. But I think "refreshing" does it the most justice. A light, crisp wine that has strong notes of green apple and tropical fruits. Mouth-watering acidity and long fruity finish.

Linda reviewed this wine:

Vineyard: A combination of estate owned fruit and purchased. All the fruit comes from the San Martin de Valdeiglesias area which is high altitude vineyards. Orientation: Elevations from 700-900 meters. Soil: Granitic Sand Viticulture: practicing organic and biodynamic. Bush trained vines in very small plots. Vinification: 25 day maceration with some whole cluster. Fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel, concrete and large wood vats. No fining and no filtering. Aging: Aged in large upright old wooden vats or stainless steel. Notes: This is a limited release wine. The new vintage tends to release the end of the summer and sell out before the end of Spring. RATINGS Publication: IWC Rating: 90 (all garnacha, aged in large wooden tanks): Vivid red. Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas are brightened by notes of blood orange and white flowers. Light-bodied but concentrated red berry flavors show good bite and lift, with a mineral quality adding focus. A clean, vibrant wine that finishes with surprising power and very good length. 90 points
