Extremely bright, straw-yellow color. In the aroma, the citrus fruit and apple stand out against a background of aromatic herbs such as lavender, thyme and even fennel. There are also aromas derived from its cask fermentation, such as coconut and vanilla. In the mouth, intensity and persistence, while at the same time it remains fresh and lively.

Rating
2010: 90 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Blanco is a blend of 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia fermented in new French oak where it remained sur lie for 4 months. White flowers, mineral, melon, and mineral notes inform the nose of this tasty, lively, impeccably balanced wine. This lengthy effort is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 3-4 years. "

2010: 90 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: " Light greenish-gold. Fresh melon and nectarine aromas are deepened by smoky spices and toasty lees. Tightly wound citrus and orchard fruit flavors flesh out with aeration, displaying deeper pit fruit and melon character while maintaining vivacity. Leaves zesty mineral and lemon zest qualities behind on the long, smoky finish."
