James Suckling - 91 pts.

Apple blossom, apricot, pear and blanched hazelnut on the nose. Some anise, too. It’s full-bodied with fresh acidity and a waxy texture. Fruity and spicy. Viura.

Tasting Panel - 90 pts

A blend of Viura, Verdejo, and Sauvignon Blanc, this most refreshing and crisply delivered white zips across the palate with honeysuckle and lemon blossom. Vibrant acidity gives it extra “shine,” with a touch of white tea and spiced lime on the finish.

Vinous - 89 pts

Pale gold. Melon, white peach and a touch of honey on the nose and palate. In a silky, open-knit style, showing good depth and a hint of sweetness on the back half. Tightens up with aeration and closes with good length and a subtle, refreshingly bitter pear skin nuance.

James Suckling - 92 pts

A pretty white, offering sliced green apple and melon with some salt and dried lemon. It’s medium- bodied with lovely fruit and a fresh finish.

Wine Enthusiast - 88 pts

Citrus and tropical fruit aromas are fit and normal for this variety, which isn’t common to Rioja. A pulpy body with acidic balance offers salty flavors of green melon and salad. On the finish, this tastes briny like a cactus pad. Drink right away.
