92 Wine Review Online Albariño is becoming increasingly popular, and with good reason, but one consequence is that it is becoming more difficult to find complete, convincing renditions priced in the mid-teens. But here you go: A terrific rendition with subtle floral aromas leading to ripe peach flavors edged with citrus acidity.

90 International Wine Report There is a lot to like with [this] Albariño. Vibrant and currently displaying a wonderful salinity, Marcona almond, white peach and gooseberry flavors all come together and fill the glass. Balanced, with lovely acidity and minerality through the finish.

89 Vinous Media Vivid straw color. Citrus pith, white flowers and a zesty mineral topnote on the tightly focused nose and in the mouth. Dry and minerally in character showing good delineation and a refreshingly bitter quinine flourish on the nicely persistent finish.

88 The Wine Enthusiast Prickly citrus aromas show a softer yeasty edge. On the palate, this is round and balanced, with good body and fresh acidity. Pithy orange and sea-salt flavors finish briny in flavor but correct and not edgy or acidic in feel.

90 International Wine Review The Nessa Albariño offers a lovely light tropical fruit nose with hints of melon and citrus. It is fresh and round on the palate with a leesy character and excellent extract of tropical fruit. A little further from the sea than the Mar de Vinas and a little riper.
"Spanish Wines of Value and Quality" - June 20, 2019
88 Wine Spectator Floral and sea breeze notes give this fresh, light white a jaunty character. Green peach, lime and tarragon flavors float across the juicy palate. Bright and refreshing. Drink now. 7,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported. — TM
