VINA ALICIA 2013 TIARA

Hi-Time Notes: "It’s not so often to find a white blend of 50% Riesling, 40% Albariño and 10% Savagnin, so when you find something like this, you sit back and take notice. The folks at Argentina’s Viña Alicia make this unusual white blend, giving it a full year on its lees before being bottled. The wine is bright lemon in color and comes alive with aromas and flavors of honeydew, kiwi fruit, lychee, lemon, mint, ginger, mineral, quinine and white flowers. The wine is opulent with medium body, supple texture and a lengthy vibrant finish. This is an alluring and complex wine, and an absolute pleasure to drink!"

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "Vina Alicia’s impressive portfolio contains one white wine, the 2008 Tiara, a blend of 50% Riesling, 40% Albarino, and 10% Savagnin (a grape native to the Jurancon region in France). The grapes are co-fermented and the wine raised in stainless steel for one year with batonnage. Light straw colored, the wine has an alluring and expressive bouquet of mineral, citrus, lemon, and floral aromas. Shimmeringly vibrant on the palate, the wine has superb acidity, dry, ripe flavors, and exceptional length. There are only 100 cases of this unique effort for the USA market."

WINE SPECTATOR 91 POINTS "Very pale straw-yellow color. Scented, pure aromas of honeysuckle and white peach. Dense and sweet, but with excellent acidity enlivening the flavors of stone fruits, spices, flowers and minerals. This really saturates the palate, conveying an impression of extract without weight. Finishes brisk, long and aromatic, with lovely lift to its floral and mineral notes. An unusually energetic and nuanced white blend from Argentina."
