Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This elegant Rioja white shows melon, tropical fruit and lime notes with pretty white floral fragrances. Dry and medium-bodied, it makes a lovely accompaniment to a seafood stew or steamed clams. Excellent value at $14.95.

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lots of ripe tropical melon, zippy lime zest and fragrant white floral. Lovely on its own or with light seafood appetizers. Great value at under $15.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Bright and refreshing. Aromas of lemon and lemon zest, white peach and some white pepper. Bright acidity, very citrus, lemon-lime on the palate with a smoother finish. Enjoy with seafood or white fish.
From the Rioja wine region Vetiver (2014) is made from 100% Viura (also known as Macabeo), a white wine grape indigenous to the region. Wine from this grape is typically, floral with pear, tropical notes, quince and honey flavours. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
