Lori Kilmartin rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The aromas out of the glass are like a flower garden after a soft rain. Honeysuckle and roses are very evident. White stone fruit and lychee add another layer to the mix. This is an off dry Muscat and Gewürztraminer blend with soft acidity and a long floral finish. Tasted August 29, 2017.
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Big aromatics on this Spanish blend. Floral notes, tropical lychee , canned mandarin orange. Off-dry, medium body, medium acidity, well balanced. Paired well with Belizean chicken tortilla soup.

Yummy aromatic and refreshing Spanish white blend of Muscat and Gewurztraminer. Prominent notes include white flower blossom, melon, and orange peel. Enjoy this light bodied crisp, off-dry white with chicken satay. Tasted July 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Natalie's Review

Torres Vina Esmeralda 2015, Catalun, Spain: So lovely and floral, pure aromatic expression. Medium-bodied and off-dry: perfect for spicy dishes. This wine has been made since 1976. Pretty with notes of sun-warmed apple blossom, honeydew and fresh peach. Perfect for mild to medium curries and spices. Incredibly great price.
