Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The top white is the 2017 Vidonia, produced with Listán Blanco grapes from the estate vineyards, where the soils have more clay and the wines tend to be more elegant. 2017 was a warm and early year, when the grapes were picked early, with 13% alcohol and a pH of 2.94. It fermented and matured in 500-liter oak barrels for 11 months. It has an incredibly elegant profile, nuanced and clean, very transparent, with great purity and focused, precise flavors. This wine has come a long way, it started as a barrel selection and it's now a completely separate cuvée vinified by soil type, where they look for places that can deliver more elegant wines. A Listán Blanco of amazing finesse. 8,000 bottles were filled in September 2018.
