    May 21, 2019 - I really like the bottle design here, FWIW; the paisley carrying through to the cap and postage stamp edge cut on the label are nice details. Light yellow color hinting towards green. Aromas of lemon meringue, cotton candy, orange peel, lime, underripe mango, white flowers, and wet slate. Medium(+) to full body, medium(+) acidity and finish, with a citrus driven palate of lemon, lime, tangerine, mandarin orange, and grapefruit, along with some lemon lime soda and minerality. Pair this with your usual albariño fare, i.e. fish, shellfish, raw bar, light and bright salads, and warm weather quaffing.

    May 7, 2019 - Very nice. Crisp acidity. Very clean. Good fruit. Three of our 15 tasters voted it "wine of the night" among 2 whites and 6 reds, all Spanish, including a 2004 Numanthia Numanthia.

    April 6, 2019 - I admit it...I’m a sucker for paisley! So the label had me at Hello! Usually I would be leery of such colorful and nice packaging on an inexpensive wine - wondering, what’s to hide? Yellow/green color. I smell grass. I taste grass. And rhubarb leaves. But there’s also dominating pineapple with delightful minerals. Add JUST a touch of creamy texture and it’s surprisingly more complex than one would expect! The Spanish are colorful and fun people - that must account for the label.
