Reviews and Ratings

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lime zest, crisp, green apple with a hint of tropical fruit. Light bodied, mouthwatering and fresh. Tasted April 25, 2017.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A crisp light bodied white wine that is low in alcohol (11.5%) makes this the perfect summer sipper. Lemon and lime aromas and flavours with some visual effervescence. Medium citrus finish. Pair with poached fish dressed with a touch of lemon juice. Tasted April 25, 2017.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Loureiro and Alvarinho blend is light and crisp with subtle aromatics of flowers and candied fruit. A hint of herbal minerality on the nose and palate keeps it from being cloying. I has a nice mouthfeel- silky and smooth on the palate. Summer sipper or great with light cheeses or seafood, chicken. Tasted April 2018
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Light-bodied, lemon-lime, green apple, dry and chalky, a bit soft on the palate - acidity is muted.
