Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The single vineyard 2014 Arnau Oller Selecció de la Familia has obtained the title 'vi de finca', which is an official category from the Catalan authorities. It's a blend of Merlot and Picapoll Negre that aged in new 500-liter French oak barrels. The resulting wine, still marked by the élevage, has good acidity and a moderate pH which makes is come through as quite fresh. The fruit is darker and riper and feels earthier. The palate revealed fine tannins and good balance. Give it some time in bottle to digest the excess oak. This is again a clear improvement over the wines from the past. 7,649 bottles.
Between 16ºC and 18ºC
Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
