This offers up a subtle set of aromatics that leaves together soft notes of honeysuckle, baked peach, slate and a touch of pumpkin with smoky notes of beeswax candle floating over it all. In the mouth it’s got the combination of rich and powerfully ripe fruit along with edgy acidity that makes Albarino such a great wine. The fruit is waxy with notes of star fruit and apricot cut through by the slightly smoky, gravelly mineral tones. The acid is prominent enough here but really very well-buffered by the fruit and only pokes out slightly on the moderately long, fresh finish, which gains a soft floral inner mouth perfume and hints on honeydew melon. A seductive little Albarino that needs some Mackerel or grilled octopus to play with. 88pts

Very refreshing. Perfect anytime of the year. Had this at many functions in DC and is always a welcoming crowd pleaser.

After stellar reviews from the audience at the launch of Let's Talk Live, the La Val was fittingly featured recently on the ABC / News Channel 8 segment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQBzfZLLBfc

Greenish yellow. Lime and lemon zest aromas are complemented by dusty minerals and quinine. Fresh citrus and apple flavors become a touch sweeter with air, picking up light peach and nectarine nuances. A touch loose on the finish, which offers decent breadth and length.

Winemaker's Notes:

Visual: Straw yellow color with greenish hints, clean and brilliant. Nose: Powerful with aromas of ripe fruit, apple, melon, critic fruits, and floral tones. Taste: Good structure and nice acidity in the mouth with a long, persistent and very pleasant finish. Very fresh.
