Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2015 Robola is unoaked and sourced from high altitude (500 meters) vines. It comes in at 13% alcohol and is very dry. Rather terrific this year, this fragrant, lively and sunny Robola is fresh and forward, dancing nicely over the tongue. I stuck this beauty back in the fridge for six hours and it seemed far better, fleshing out, opening up and showing better depth than I normally see from this level. Granting that I'm seeing this a bit early, it seems to have a lot going on. Right now, it is one of the most impressive performances from a young Robola in this brand. Will it round into form and remain as impressive? I'm thinking that it will, but at the least it will be the perfect summer white, elegant but always persistent, too. One of its biggest advantages is its wonderfully expressive fruit. It isn't the biggest, deepest or most powerful of its type (even in this issue), but its gloriously fresh feel and intensely flavorful fruit make it the most enticing. It's worth leaning up on this just now. This is probably best drunk over its first few years, but it can last longer. It should be brilliant later this summer, by the way, so don't hesitate to dive in this year or next. It is a wine that thrives on freshness.

About This Wine

Made entirely from Robola of Kefalonia, an increasingly rare, ungrafted, noble grape variety. A fresh, vivacious, crisp white wine, which expresses all the mineral and citrus characteristics of this unique variety. Complex, balanced and dry, with an orange blossom nose and long finish.
