This offers up rich complex notes of green citrus peels, herbs, and wildflowers backed up with sweet pink grapefruit and guava. The palate is rich yet soft and billows around in the mouth, again providing a gentle impression of sweetness that covers the guava and pineapple fruit. It’s a bit of a sneaky wine, not as soft as it may seem and really gaining lovely clarity on the long finish which has a touch of maraschino cherry to it before ending on a sweet grapefruit finale. Just an all around fine wine for drinking on its own or with food, try shrimp or clams in garlic sauce, or, heck, go whole hog and make it shrimp and clams, with a few morsels of chorizo to add some spark! 90pts

Honey and sage aromas. Very spicy with a good bit of acidity, a little cream and a tart finish.

Nose of mango and mint, with leaf trimmings. Reminds me of mojito. The mouth has a lot of minerality which gives it good body, and the acidity is not sharp. Very good.

very refreshing for a summer day! aromas of peach, tropical fruit, some banana, and grapefruit. the palate has that immediate citrus component, grapefruit spritzer with a little white peach.

Nose of summer fruits, lemon curd, pear and peach. Really crisp, bright acidity. Lemony fresh with a soft woodsiness (cedar). Crisp fresh acids dominate on the finish. Great summery wine.

Amazing white! It definitely shows what the Verdejo grape is all about.
