    April 3, 2021 - I really like where this is now with crisp, mouthwatering acidity combined with developed flavors of lime, grapefruit, cumquats and fresh green veggies. Good pinpoint intensity which leads to an elegant finish with lovely complex notes of seawater, green apple and chalky minerals. A perfectly balanced wine.

    March 13, 2021 - The Great Grapes of the World Tasting with Friends (New Jersey, USA): Last of six dry white served this evening. Maybe a little palate fatigue but this didn’t shine quite as bright as the last time I had it. Great medium golden color, plenty of richness but a slightly muted nose. Perhaps attributable to the lack of time to breathe due to my neglecting to open it in advance. So, it was PnP. Flavors framed in a mineral casing with a melange of fruit like apricot, light citrus and peach. Moderately long finish but not as long as I remember the last bottle. I really think this suffered from the lack of air and with the group in "high gear" it didn't last very long.

    March 13, 2021 - 91 Precioso color dorado verdoso intenso. Nariz delicada, camomila, floral, cera de abeja. En boca es muy elegante, untuoso, con notas salinas y amargas. Está en su mejor momento, como siempre, entre el tercer y el quinto año desde la cosecha.

    February 23, 2021 - Apple and pear, some citrus, salty notes. The wine has a nice density and length, drinking well, has been unfortunately my last one.
