Vinous, 93 Points 

"Glistening straw-yellow. A complex and highly perfumed bouquet evokes lemon curd, pear, melon and pungent flowers, along with a hint of smokiness. Vibrant, penetrating orchard and citrus fruit flavors show impressive depth and take on mineral, fennel and honeysuckle notes with air. Fleshes out slowly through an impressively long, mineral-driven finish that emphatically echoes the pear note." 

James Suckling, 92 Points 

"This is dialed into chalky aromas, crushed stones, lemon peel, dried white flowers and sliced green apples. The palate has a very contained, crisp feel with bright, lively fruit flavors. Quite taut and refined. Chalky finish. Drink now." 

Wine Advocate, 90 Points 

"The Albariño 2018 Selección Finca Monte Alto from a seven-hectare vineyard planted in 1988 has had more time to settle, as it was in stainless steel for 12 months before it was bottled. It has varietal aromas and a lightish palate that makes it easy to drink, pleasant and straightforward." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Straw yellow with greenish hues, clean and bright. High aromatic intensity, notes of ripe fruits, apple and citrus fruits. Reminiscent of bakery goods, brioche and subtle toasty notes which begin to emerge over time in the bottle. The palate is structured and fresh with very well-integrated acidity, unctuous and smooth. Aromas of ripe fruit at the finish, complex and round. Fillaboa Selección Finca Monte Alto is a great Albariño wine with enormous aging potential. It is aromatic, straightforward and fresh." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
