Wine Advocate 88
" The 2016 Festivo Torronts is produced with grapes from parral vineyards in the Valle de Famatina in the province of La Rioja, and fermented there, because otherwise you cannot mention the origin on the label. It fermented in stainless steel tanks and was bottled unoaked. It has a perfumed nose with notes of white flowers with a spicy twist la Gewurztraminer. The palate is light with pungent flavors and a soft texture, with moderate acidity, even though it didn't go through malolactic fermentation. "
