Talking About the Wines:
-Vinous Media, June '21 gave 91 points to 2018 La Ola. “Pale, green-tinged yellow. Mineral-accented orange, peach and a hint of jasmine on the perfumed nose. Dry and lively on the palate, offering fresh citrus and orchard fruit flavors that show very good delineation. Hints of fennel and honeydew melon build with air and carry through a long, silky finish, which leaves dusty mineral and bitter citrus pith notes behind.”
-Washington Wine Blog, Feb '21 gave 91 points to 2018 La Ola. "“Salted nectarine and gooseberry tones mingle with crushed seashells on the nose. The palate is fresh and inviting with a beautiful texture. Layers of honeysuckle and melon combine with beeswax, salted Macadamia nut and ripe nectarine on the palate. Fantastic in its youth enjoy this outstanding effort over the next five years.”
