Clean, refreshing, medium-bodied and good typicity Albarino. Pale gold with youthful aromas of green apple,apricot, peach,citrus,delicate blossom, sweet spice. Flavours bring forward some minerality,white pepper,fennell.
Medium+length on the crisp and fresh finish.
Very good value at $14.95. Nice everyday white for hot summer days.

Tasted April 2014
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light, crisp, and refreshing with minerality, lemon & line, and some white flower aromas. The flavour is a light citrus with a touch of honey and flowers. Quite a nice summer wine. Try it on its own, or with a fresh green salad.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
