Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 VO Versión Original is different from previous vintages. This wine usually comes from a part of the vineyards that are also used for the ROC, but because that part suffered frost in 2017, Verónica Ortega had to find a new source for the wine. So, the 2017 is from a slope vineyard with sandy soils, the west side of the Pieros from Tilenus. As the slope is quite steep, these vines escaped the frost. The wine was concentrated from the low yields, and the structure called for aging in barrique for 14 months. It fermented with around 60% full clusters, including some white grapes that are interplanted with the reds. It's quite spicier than the ROC, with more bones and less meat; it's perhaps earthier and a little more rustic than ROC as well. This is quite serious and has enough of everything to develop in bottle and stand up to powerful foods. 2,600 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2019.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts and full clusters. Aged for 13 months in 800 liter amphorae.
