"(90% viura and 10% malvasia; raised in new French oak for three and a half months): Pale yellow. Intense aromas of fresh peach, pineapple and lemon pith complicated by floral and ginger topnotes. Juicy and expansive on the palate, with vibrant acidity giving cut and focus to the ripe pit and tropical fruit flavors. Spicy notes linger on the sappy, sharply focused finish, which leaves a bitter quinine note behind. This is a superb value in white Rioja. - Josh Raynolds"
