CRITICS AND REVIEWS:
-Vinous Media (Spain’s Northern Regions Keep it Cool), Mar ’19 gave 93 points to 2015 Amodiño. “Limpid yellow. A wild, complex bouquet displays dried pear, beeswax, lemon pith and chamomile qualities. A mineral note builds steadily in the background. Stains the palate with intense, mineral-driven citrus and orchard fruit flavors that intertwine power and finesse with a sure hand. The mineral note drives an impressively long, chewy finish that leaves suggestions of candied hazelnut and bitter pear skin behind. The food-matching possibilities here are endless.”
