What does this wine taste like?
This wine comes much closer to the actual fruit juices, especially red fruits such as strawberries and raspberries, yet cranberries are there too. A juicy wine, intense on the palate, with spicy notes and very subtle hints of oak-ageing, delicious and refreshing.
Drinking and storing
Opening the bottle half an hour before serving is recommended.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson
Good.....but not great
I wanted to try this one due the fact that their flagship wine is rated as one of the best in the world (and pretty expensive). So I have bought a few bottles and my initial reaction is that it is indeed a very smooth and pleasant wine and (obviously) very well made. Maybe because of where it cam from I was a little underwhelmed.....but don't let this put you off!
Strong potential, should improve
This wine looks great and offers a good, complex aroma - it is good to drink now but with more tannins and therefore not yet the softer, richer taste of similar quality Riberas that are 1/2/3 years older. A great prospect!
Excellent entry into the realms of Pingus without destroying your bank balance. Indeed I would describe this a s high quality wine that represents excellent value for money.
a real treat
open a couple of hours before drinking and you're paid back with some intense, dark fruit and enduring flavours, well worth a try
Always an very good wine
Great wine and reasonable value - I have been buying every vintage since 2010 and it is always high quality
