Reviews of Follas Novas 2017
It is worth re-buying this Follas Novas.
It had a deep colour at first sight. The 2018 smelled like banana. It reminded me of candied almonds.
The darker yellow colour I've seen in the wines of Rias Baixas. The Follas Novas Blanco reminded me of jasmine on the nose. I wasn't expecting such an balanced white.
