Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From the parts of the vineyards with more limestone in the soil, they selected 12 rows to produce a white wine, the first vintage of which is the explosive 2016 12 Liños Blanco ('liños' is the local adaptation of 'lineo,' which means row). There is a pun intended with the reference to an 'explosive' wine because the nose had a very strong note of gunpowder, very reductive and mineral with a notable absence of fruit, stony and with great finesse. It has a very attractive and complex nose from the eight months in ancient and large (38 arrobas, or 630 liters) Manzanilla casks where the wine fermented and aged under a veil of yeasts. There is a touch of bitterness and some lovely rusticity. This is sold without appellation of origin. There are 1,200 bottles of this initial vintage.
Estimated transit time: 5-6 working days.
