Reviews and Ratings

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intense nose of ripe peach, melon, wet straw, cold cream, acacia and a chalky mineral note.

On the palate, peach, bitter almond, Meyer lemon zest, herbaceous notes all in a creamy mouthfeel and nice medium+ chalky finish.

A delightfully complex wine for the price; I'd happily try ageing.

Tasted October 2016.
This vibrant Spanish white wine is made from 90% Alvarinho, 5% Loureiro and 5% Caino Blanco grapes. This winery was acquired by the Cistercian monks in 1163 and has been a family winery since 1864. Two stone pines are the symbols of this historical winery and thus are depicted on the label. - Community Wine Review.

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.
