james suckling hq logo plain"Some lifted poached-pear and lemon-peel aromas, as well as sweet perfume. The palate delivers a smooth and juicy array of melon and white-peach flavors. Bright, crunchy and fresh. From organically grown grapes. Drink now."

tim atkin logo 250"Part of an impressive range from an Alfaro-based bodega, this organic white is a delightfully fresh, well-balanced cuvée of Viura and 40% Tempranillo Blanco that's all about tangy apple and citrus peel fruit rather than oak. Very drinkable. 2019-20"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Ripe melon, pineapple, and hints of white flowers emerge from the 2017 Blanco Organic, which is an interesting blend of 60% Viura and 40% Tempranillo Blanco brought up in tank. Medium-bodied, with bright acidity and beautiful purity of fruit, it’s a smoking value that’s going to be versatile on the dinner table. This is another terrific house white brought in by Fran Kysela."

vinous logo"(raised in stainless steel and concrete tanks) Brilliant straw color. Fresh pear and white flowers on the herb-inflected nose and in the mouth. Silky and open-knit, showing notes of tarragon and bitter pear skin on the nicely persistent finish. - Josh Raynolds"
