Talking About the Wines:
-International Wine Review, Dec '20 gave 91 points to 2018 La Ola. “Gold tinged yellow straw. Aromas of bay leaf, dried stone fruit, and chamomile. Rich, almost creamy, on a savory palate with notes of dried stone fruit and a melange of dried herbs. Firm acidity kicks in on the finish. 100% Albariño given a 8-10 hour cold soak, then fermented with ambient yeasts in stainless steel; 6 months aging on lees with weekly battonage.”
