Community Tasting Notes 6

    October 3, 2015 - Light golden-honey color. Aroma is of weak stone fruit, a bit of acidity, but the alcohol is apparent; aroma is muted overall. Mouthfeel is round and soft. The acidity comes on a bit strong at first but rounds out. To be honest, I can't really detect any specific fruit flavors. It comes fruit first but it's really quite weak. Not bone dry, but definitely dry. Very short lived.

    Overall, soft, round, with acidity, and non-descript aroma and taste.

    May 12, 2014 - Pale yellow. Fresh, fruity nose with hints of peach, citrus and white fruit. Crisp acidity, very dry, kinda clean taste with some astringency. Really nice everyday wine, probably best with food.

    May 11, 2014 - Quaffable mixture of Viura to be accomplished with food. This time at El Laurel Gastrobar in Alicante.
    Pale hay coloured.
    Expressive nose, quite fragrant with aromas of flowers and white fruit.
    Palate, on the other hand, showed timid and shortie. Its better thing? That final bitterness...nothing great anyway. An easy drink.

    Una mezcla de Viura muy zampable para acompañar comida. Esta vez en El Laurel Gastrobar de Alicante.
    Coloreada de pálido heno.
    Nariz expresiva, bastante fragante con aromas a flores y fruta blanca.
    De otro lado, la boca se mostró tímida y cortita. ¿Lo mejor? Ese amargor final...nada grandioso de todos modos. De trago fácil.

    December 6, 2013 - Lively weediness on the nose and palate, a part of which is varietal imparted, another part is greenish. Lime, hints of tart grapefruit and more weediness on the palate. Respectable finish.

    November 17, 2013 - Light gold in color, this wine revealed muted citrus notes on the nose. The mid-palate brought an off-putting sourness, and the finish was flat. At almost $13US, this was a complete disappointment.
