Altozano Verdejo & Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

70% Verdejo, 30% Sauvignon Blanc A bit candied on the nose which shows lots of lime like citrus character along with hints of banana and mint. Good acid refreshes the palate here and helps support the somewhat lean citrus flavors on the palate. Fading away on the backend this is clean, crisp and fresh, but lacks complexity or much of a finish. An easy drinking party wine. 83pts

Quire pure on the nose with hints of herb stem and earth framing sweet cognac tinged notes of earl grey tea and raspberry compote. The oak gains a little more intensity but aromatically this remains wonderfully focused and bright. On entry there a big rush of raspberry fruit followed by bristly yet well covered tannins and a nice dose of earthy, savory spice on the midpalate. A bit of blueberry and more earthy notes emerge in the mouth as this gains both herbal and peppery complexity on the back of the palate. a bit fruity on the finish, and a touch dry, this is a bit bigger than I might prefer but has real tension in the mouth, excellent complexity, and lovely purity and freshness to the fruit. It is a tannic wine, and it grows spicier with air so serve it with the appropriate food. I suggest a nice herb and garlic rubbed piece of grilled lamb! 88pts

Intensives Kirschrot. In der Nase komplexe Aromen von Gewürzen und verschiedenen Fruchtkomponenten. Am Gaumen ein powervoller, würziger, eleganter und gut strukturierter Wein mit einem langen, eleganten fruchtbetonten Abgang.
