Tasting notes (Josh Raynolds) Bright yellow.  Powerful scents of mineral-tinged orchard and pit fruits, with a lemony nuance adding lift.  Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy nectarine, pear, orange and honeysuckle flavors underscored by chalky minerality.  Shows very good clarity and lift on the finish, with the pear and citrus fruit notes echoing.  One doesn’t encounter much treixadura as a varietal bottling.
