Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Unfortunately, I found a high-pitched note of volatility (nail polish, varnish) on the nose of the white 2017 Mercenario that bothered me and made it very difficult to see beyond it. The idea of this wine is to follow the line of the 2016, but 2017 was marked by terrible frost and lots of rain followed by a very warm summer that accelerated ripeness; as a result, the wines are a little riper and have a little more alcohol. This had a slightly longer élevage of ten months instead of seven. The palate is better than the nose, but the volatile note makes a comeback on the finish. It has a softer mouthfeel and more polished acidity. If you're sensitive to VA this is not really for you. 2,600 bottles were filled in December 2018.
