    Winemaker's Notes:

    This vintage has a very delicate straw color. Aromas of fresh flowers, kiwi and jasmine with citrus notes of lime and grapefruit are followed by flavors of roses, nectarine and orange zest. On the palate, there is a floral entry that is delicate, soft and coating leading to an elegant, persistent finish. Complex and graceful, this is a wonderful match for delicate fish and shellfish, Nicoise salad, polenta and Asian fusion cuisine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Excellent nose of lemon, pit fruits, and tropical aromas; racy, elegant style, good depth, long.

    The Wine Advocate

    Smooth, tropical and melony, with an easygoing palate that comfortably houses green melon, lime, grapefruit and other tropical fruit flavors. The finish is mildly pithy and bitter, but overall this is a clean, well-crafted wine that genuinely captures the essence of Torront├ęs.

    Wine Enthusiast

    Very pure, with a stony edge framing the quinine, salted butter, white peach and floral notes that all weave together on the long, paraffin-tinged finish.

    Wine Spectator

    Pale medium yellow. Orange peel and gingery spices on the nose, along with deeper honeyed and leesy qualities. Nicely concentrated but rather uncompromising, with a slightly sharp spine of acidity adding to the wine's dry impression. Shows a bit more body with air but finishes with a slightly tart edge. This might be interesting with raw shellfish, and would make an intriguing alternative for those who like very dry and affordable Alsace riesling.
