Tasting notes, by Frank Smulders MW: “This varietal Garnacha Blanca reveals straight away it’s character with a complex nose with clear oak influence (cedar wood) and oxidoreduction (biscuit, bread-dough, bruised apple). The palate is mouthfilling, offering a fine balance between ageing notes, ripe fruit character and refreshing acidity. Cedarwood, vanilla, yellow apple, bread-dough and toast. Long finish.”
