Tasting Note:

Onion skin colour with notes of bitter lemon, quinine and turmeric on the nose. Remarkably clean and complex on the palate with a harmonious mix of lemon, dried spices, ceps and pithy grapefruit. The balance here is extraordinary; lively and open with beautiful freshness and interest, dazzling lines of lemony and crisp peachy fruit but with a marked saline current that will pair beautifully with food. Less austere than Listan Blanco but it still has plenty of phenolic grip and raciness to leave the taster feeling animated. Perhaps a little too esoteric for purely classical palates, it is nevertheless imbued with that all-important “deliciousness” that will see all of Borja’s wines drain themselves over a relaxed lunch in the sunshine!
