Winemaker's Notes:

Straw yellow, clean and bright. On the nose, intense and elegant at the same time. The wine shows typical aromas of the estate such as, pineapple, stone and citrus fruits and hints of apple and mango.On the palate, the attack is smooth, with a vibrant acidity which perfectly reflects the wine's personality.This is a fruity, fresh and very zesty Albariño wine with a personality of its own.

Floral honeysuckle and hazelnut notes on the palate with some melon notes and hints of toasted rye bread. A smooth and rich palate on entry develops into a blend of zesty, refreshingly tart citrus and green apple notes alongside tangerine and crisp pineapple. Finishes with an herbal slate note and a grassy wet slate salinity.

Very pretty on the nose with a subtle, gentle character that shows of soft floral, honey and anise tones. Lovely cut on entry with a nice tactile feel. This has a subtle angular texture and fresh flavors of citrus and green apple fruits with gentle mineral suggestions. The finish exhibits a light pithy bitterness that complements the core of fruit. The finish is floral and apple-scented with good length. 89pts

Smells vaguely of olive oil with its blend of green fruit and peppery herbal undertones. The acid offers nice cut on entry and the years of aging has certainly given this a broader mouthfeel with the fresh fruit flavors showing no worse for wear. There’s a lot of slightly baked apple here with a hint of quince and some modeler’s glue adding complexity to the core of peach and dried mango flavors. This is not your everyday Albarino, and as such, you need to know what you’re getting into here. It’s a more meditative wine that lacks some of the sheer excitement of the best young Albarino, but makes up for it with added richness and complexity. Just a bit short on the finish. 89pts

Fragrant nose filled with floral and peach notes. Lots of peaches and grapefruit on the palate as well, with a trace of minerality that I'm really digging these days. Bit of effervescence lends this a supremely refreshing, easy-to-drink quality. Excellent with butter pan-fried breaded cod.

92 points Wine and Spirits, `Golden in color and in ripe flavors of nectarine and kumquat, this wine finishes clean and long. The final impression is of a gentle rain along the coast, cool and refreshing. For mackerel sashimi.` And, according to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The 2006 Finca Monte Alto is a single vineyard selection of Albarino. Light gold-colored, it has an alluring perfume of mineral, apple, lemon, spring flowers, and pineapple. On the palate, it has a smooth, nearly creamy texture, ripe fruit, and good balance.
