  • The independent wine guide, The Wine Advocate, has tasted this wine in April 2015, and gave it 94 points Parker. "The top of the range in whites is the unusually called 2013 Que Bonito Cacareaba, a powerful blend of Garnacha Blanca, Malvasía and Viura from old vines on chalk and clay soils fermented in new French oak barrique without the addition of yeasts and matured in those barrels for eight months. This is a serious well-oaked white designed for the long run, which at this stage feels quite oaky but there is a sense of harmony and restrained power and slowly reveals strong minerality, both in the nose and the palate. 6,000 bottles produced."
