At first this has an attractive and assertive green nettle tone which then yields to a shale mineral component and subtle notes of horse and black licorice that accent the lovely almost candied yet very clear black raspberry liquor fruit. Smooth and rich on the mouth with a leanness that is attractive and a cleansing quality to the acid and tannin that doesn’t obscure the herb and hot dry soil tinged black raspberry fruit. This shows a touch more tannin on the back end that gives this a bit of rusticity but the tannins are wonderfully crisp with just a hint of refreshing astringency Full throttle and eminently drinkable, this is neither particularly complex nor simple, just terrific. 91pts

A bright, pale-green and yellow hue, aromas of green citrus, wet hay, diesel and minerals; bright, tart acid driven notes of asparagus, kiwi and wet stone thru a long, focused finish. Worth every penny when paired with a picnic or white fish.

    This was really an exceptionally unique and standout wine. It has it's own character - very similar to the Yalumba Barossa I often drink.

    This wine is 100 percent Monastrell (Mourvedre), not Grenache!

    Insanely good value white--should be a contender for house white, given its zesty flavors and a heavier mouthfeel than Sauvignon Blanc. Lime zest and litchi-fruit aromas, which are subtle until it warms up in the glass. Waxy flavors of Meyer lemon, golden delicious apple, candied lemon peel, and lime. Delicious, versatile white. Verdejo, Viura, and Sauvignon Blanc.

    Great QPR on this Spanish red. Deep, bright garnet in color. Aromas of blackberry and marshmallow give an initial, sweet impression. Palate is much leaner than the aromas suggest, with black fruits, a touch of tar in the mid-palate, and a slightly stemmy finish. What a glorious set of contradictions. Satiny in the mouth. Drying finish. Loved it.

    Strohgelbe Farbe. Aromen nach Zitrusfüchten, Passionsfrucht, Kiwi, Holunder. Am Gaumen ein leicht würziger Touch mit exotischen Frucht-Nuancen. Sehr fruchtiger, süffiger Weisswein.

    Rubinrote Farbe. In der Nase, fruchtige Noten. Ein autentischer, ländlicher Wein. Im Gaumen schöne Frucht, Frische mit einem eleganten Abgang.

    Goldgelbe Farbe. Ein Jungwein. Fruchtig mit feinem, blumigen Bouquet, tropische Fruchtnoten, angenheme Süsse. Frischer, fruchtiger Gaumen.
