17.14₣ (Exc. VAT bot. 75 cl.) / Switzerland
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I tasted the 2017 Allende Blanco next to the 2016, so it was interesting to compare the healthy and late 2016 with the problematic (frost and low yields) and early 2017. De Gregorio started picking the 19th of September, over 20 days earlier than in 2016. The wines were produced the same way and always a Viura blend with some 5% Malvasía Riojana, fermented and matured in new French barriques but this time with a slightly shorter élevage of 14 months. This shows more developed aromas than the 2016 with diesel-like notes and a spicy and smoky twist. The fruit has a ripe touch without being overripe, and there is a pleasant bitter note in the finish. Yields were lower, so there are 24,000 bottles of this wine. It was bottled in April 2019.
