Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2020 Escondite del Ardacho El Abundillano is the single-vineyard bottling that goes faster in the market, so I tasted a wine that is one year younger than the other two. It started with a strong reduction and needed time to dissipate it, so if your bottle is reduced, give it an energetic decanting and some time in the decanter. After a good 30 minutes, the wine starts to unfurl very attractive floral aromas with some meaty tones and a balanced and vibrant palate, a place that always produces a very showy wine. In 2020 he harvested the 5th of November with good ripeness that delivered 14.5% alcohol, so it's powerful, but it also has a lot of acidity that shows up in the shape of acid berries. The three single-plot wines have a similar fermentation, with 40% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and aging in used barrels for some nine months. This is mostly Garnacha, the grape responsible for the showy and floral aromatics, with some 6% Tempranillo and 4% Malvasía Riojana. 1,866 bottles were filled in August 2021.
