Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pale and aromatic 2017 Arroyo del Tórtolas has a herbal twist perhaps because of the hurried ripening of the grapes in a very warm year. At the same time, it has contained alcohol, and with the benefit of one extra year in bottle, the nose is fully open, expressive and approachable. It is medium-bodied and fresh, with fine tannins, and is lighter than the 2018 but beautiful to drink now. Delicious. 2,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2019.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Alcoholic fermentation with part of the stalks in open wood tub. Aged for 11 monts in French oak barrels of 225 and 600 litres capacity.
