Reviews of Follas Novas 2019
It had a deep colour at first sight. The 2018 smelled like banana. It reminded me of candied almonds.
The Albariño Follas Novas is a powerful wine in my opinion.
Albariño Follas Novas 2017
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.
