Talking About the Wines:
-Wine & Spirits Magazine, Aug ’18, gave 93 points to 2013 Frore de Carme, wine is listed “Year’s Best Galician & Rias Baixas Wines”
-A View From The Cellar, May-June ’18, gave 90 points to 2013 Frore de Carme. “The 2013 “Sólo Albariño, Doble Lías” from Frore de Carme is a lovely example of mature Albariño that is still drinking beautifully and bright and vibrant on both the nose and palate. The secondary layers of complexity inform the nose of fresh lime, a bit of pineapple, lovely leesy tones, salty minerality, candied citrus peel and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, complex and well-balanced, with a fine core, still very good acidity and a long, focused and classy finish. This is at its peak at age five, but still has plenty of life ahead of it.”
