Ratings & Reviews

Stephen Tanzer (2012 Vintage):
"Light yellow-gold. High-pitched aromas of citrus and orchard fruits, with hints of quinine and white pepper in the background. This dry, refreshingly bitter white Rioja offers tangy lime and green apple flavors that show a bit of warmth on the finish. Reminds me a bit of a wine from the southern Rhone." - Josh Raynolds (September 2013)
