Talking About the Wines:
-Dr. Owen Bargreen, Sept ’22 gave 91 points to 2021 Nosis. “Soured from 35-year-old Verdejo vines that are set in sandy-loam soils, the 2021 ‘Nosis’ offers salted cashew and diatomaceous earth notes alongside bright pear and kiwi. The palate is fresh with a smooth texture and bright acidity. Serve at a slightly warmer temperature to take in this silky Rueda.”
-Dr. Michael Apstein, Aug ’22 gave 91 points to 2020 Nosis. “Buil & Giné, based in the Gratallops in Priorat and one of the top producers there, expanded their holdings to Rueda a couple of decades ago. Their “Nosis” bottling, made from 35-year-old vines, displays lovely floral aromas and cutting, crisp citrus flavors that balance its substantial density.”
-Vinous Media, Feb ’21 gave 90 points to 2018 Nosis. “Bright yellow-gold. Tropical fruits, melon, candied ginger and a touch of honey on the highly perfumed nose and in the mouth. In a plush, open-knit style but not at all lacking for energy, showing strong heft and finishing smooth, spicy and quite long, with lingering, spice-tinged melon and pineapple notes.”
