Spain Red

Valencia 75cl

Most of the below comes from Jamie Goode and his wine anorak website and his December 2020 reviews. The below is largeky about the 2018 though i habve changed the odd fact etcx.
This is quite special. Itís from a single plot, planted in 1970 with local variety Arcos, that is ideally suited to the region (it ripens later than Monastrell), but with phylloxera died out somewhat. One hectare of 50 year old vines, 100% whole cluster, fermented in amphorae then goes to glass demijohns after 8 months. This is really fine, fresh, pepper and detailed. Thereís a massive drinkability to this wine which shows pure red cherry and cranberry fruit with some green stemmy notes and some dried herb character. Itís really vivid and layered. A lighter-style red with lovely complexity. Very fresh, not quite in the league of the 2018 but still very good.
