Catalan-based Cordoníu Raventós started this project in Carneros 25 years ago, and this is the highest score we’ve yet awarded to an Artesa wine. It’s made by Portuguese-born Ana Diogo Draper, who joined Artesa in 2013, becoming director of winemaking in 2015. It’s as targeted as a bee sting, with scents of wildflower honey and beeswax. The texture has some apple-butter richness, but the clarity and freshness of the fruit keeps it bouncy, clean enough to serve with a grilled octopus salad, and substantial enough to take on buttermilk-fried chicken.
The full citrus and pineapple aromas are well married to the vanilla oak. Medium to full body and lively acidity to form a very satisfying package.
This is a full-bodied, fleshy and oaky white, intense in flavor and grippy power. It delivers tones of anise and lavender amidst succulent layers of white nectarine and green apple. (VB)
