Editorial Reviews for Tapena Verdejo
Grapefruit, lime and a hint of passion fruit greet the nose. This smells like Sauvignon Blanc. Bright, broad and flat in the mouth, this offers up some modest citrus tones married to a sweet peach note. More aromatic on the nose than flavorful, there is some citrus fruit on the back end that ops on the brief finish. 81pts
