90 Vinous Media Bright straw-yellow. A lively bouquet displays aromas of fresh citrus and orchard fruits, green tea and dusty minerals, and an herbal nuance builds in the glass. Taut, mineral-driven Meyer lemon and green apple flavors stretch out with air and pick up a refreshingly bitter quinine accent. Closes minerally and long, featuring a subtle floral note and a snap of chalky minerality.

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.

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.
