Talking About the Wines:

-Wine Spectator Magazine, June '17 gave 92 points to 2015 Joan Giné Blanc. "This expressive white offers floral and tropical notes, framing a core of pear, peach and blanched almond flavors. Lively acidity and light tannins impart grip. Features a rich texture but remains fresh and delicate through the spicy finish."

-International Wine Report, April '17 gave 93 points to 2015 Joan Giné Blanc. "...This excellent wine...comes to life and opens with a bright bouquet of marzipan, blood orange rind, kumquat and suggestions of beeswax. The mid-palate weight is lovely as the wine currently reveals rich flavors of brioche, butternut squash, orange marmalade, honey, Pazzaz apple and suggestions of baking spices. Rice, dense and plush, with incredible aromatic and flavor range, the silky mouthfeel leads to an exceedingly long finish that delightfully lingers."

-Wine Spectator Magazine, April '16 gave 90 points to 2014 Joan Giné Blanc. "Juicy peach and pineapple flavors mingle with almond and straw notes in this broad-textured white. Tangerine acidity gives way to a leesy finish. Bold yet balanced."
