“This has a different profile, subtler, with great perfume, an herbal side, spicy and floral, with some citrus-like freshness. It’s extremely elegant and vibrant, yet shows restraint, a wine that really transported me to the vineyard where these old vines grow, showing it has a true sense of place. It’s quite unique, coming from a zone (Alpartir), where the old timers considered the best wines from the zone, to be produced. I think they have discovered something really important here. I previewed the 2017 and even the fermenting 2018, and the wines show a common thread.”
