Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2012)86 pts

The 2012 Vivanco Blanco is a perfumed and exotic unoaked blend of 60% Viura, 20% Malvasia and 20% Tempranillo Blanco, with notes of lemon meringue and flowers with a fresh, clean palate. Easy to drink.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2011)88 pts

Light, green-tinged gold. Pungent aromas of pear skin, melon and herbs, with a hint of honeysuckle. Sappy and broad, with dense pit fruit flavors sharpened by tangy acidity. Picks up a sweet nuance with air and finishes with good clarity, juiciness and length.

Wine Spectator (2012)89 pts

This graceful white is aromatic, with pine, honeysuckle and peach notes. Firm and polished, offering accents of mineral and wet stone. Not exuberant, but harmonious.
