"Full gold. A perfumed, complex bouquet evokes dried pit fruits, honey and toasted nuts, with floral and beeswax accents adding complexity. Deep, fleshy and broad, offering chewy peach, pear skin and candied almond flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Closes with firm grip and very good persistence, leaving floral and honey notes behind."

2013 Muga Blanco

"The nose is fresh and ripe at the same time. It brings together honey, citrus fruit and an elegant touch of pineapple. As “curtain-raisers” we have the ever-present fine lees and hints of pastry shop aromas. Very much in the background, almost imperceptible at this point, the fine oak spiciness begins to come through. The attack is surprisingly dominant compared to what we expect in this wine. The acidity is perfectly integrated into the wine without overpowering it. It is a wine which initially tastes the way it smells but changes its profile in the aftertaste and retronasal phase. The aftertaste is smooth with hints of green apples and apple liqueur. The retronasal phase brings back apples and acid fruit balanced with spices, but now the oaked aromas of vanilla and coconut."

2013 Gramona Gessami

"This wine is like a walk in the spring. It’s reminiscent of the coolness of fresh air and a bouquet of white flowers, (roses, jasmine, etc.), fennel, apricots and forest, all wrapped in a sweet atmosphere full of freshness."

2004 R Lopez de Heredia Gravonia Crianza White

"The 2004 Vina Gravonia Blanco is pure Viura from a vineyard named after the white wines from Graves in Bordeaux, which Don Rafael Lopez de Heredia y Landeta, founder of the winery, admired. It is aged for four years in used barrels, racked every six months and bottled after being fined with egg whites. 40,000 bottles were produced in the great 2004 vintage. It has a bright, shiny (almost fluorescent!) yellow color and a fresh nose of citric fruit (pink grapefruit), fennel, dried flowers, chamomile, beeswax and hints of mushrooms. The palate has superb acidity, which gives it incredible freshness with great delineation and purity of flavors finishing very dry with a mineral, almost saline note. It invites you to have another bottle! This wine is labeled Crianza, but the aging times (and the quality) greatly exceed the requirements for the category. It’s sold almost a decade after the vintage year, so I still consider it a real bargain. Delicious now, but it should age with style."
