90 Vinous Media Limpid straw-yellow. Mineral-accented aromas of white peach, tangerine and honey take on a floral nuance as the wine opens up. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering fresh citrus and pit fruit flavors that deepen steadily with air. Clings with very good tenacity on the spicy finish, which shows very good clarity and repeating florality.

88 International Wine Review A 100% Garnacha Blanca with vines ranging from 20-50+ years and grapes destemmed prior to crushing. Savory with an herbal nose like Sauvignon Blanc and soft on the attack with citrus and melon flavors. Finishes dry and medium long.

88 View from the Cellar I was delighted to see the 2017 vintage of Las Colinas del Ebro Garnaxta Blanca from Bodegas Abanico arrive on my doorstep sealed with a plastic cork, as the last two vintages of this wine have been sealed under screwcap and permanently reduced when I tasted them (with an obviously very good wine buried under the reduction). The 2017 is a ripe and complex wine, coming in at fourteen percent octane and offering up a bouquet of pineapple, sweet grapefruit, white flowers, a fine base of soil tones and a nice touch of citrus peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is broad-shouldered, full-bodied and nicely balanced for its ripeness level, with a very good core of fruit, sound framing acids, fine focus and grip and a long, tasty finish. This is not overly complex, but hits all the right notes and offers up a lot of personality for fifteen dollars per bottle! 2018-2021.

90 Vinous Media Light, bright yellow. Musky, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruits and white flowers on the nose; a gingery element builds as the wine opens up. Silky and energetic in style, offering focused Meyer lemon and pear flavors that flesh out steadily with air. Shows very good energy and mineral cut on the clinging finish, which reveals a touch of smokiness. 2021-2023

88 View from the Cellar The 2018 Las Colinas del Ebro Garnatxa Blanca from Bodegas Abanico seems just a touch riper in its panoply of aromatics in comparison to the 2017 version, though the new vintage comes in listed at 13.5 percent again. The bouquet is ripe and effusive, offering up scents of pineapple coulis, wild fennel, salty soil tones and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, ripe and full-bodied, with a good core, a nice foundation of soil tones, sound acids and good length and grip on the bouncy and nicely buxom finish. This is quite tasty, and my comments about last year’s version not being overly complex, but hitting all the right notes, is equally true of this very good 2018. Good juice. 2020-2025.
