Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Salvatge Brut Vintage is only produced in years when they consider the Macabeo grape, which is always the base of the blend, to be exceptional. Macabeo (also known as Viura in Rioja) tends to provide very good acidity. This is a blend of 66% Macabeo, 29% Xarel·lo and 5% Parellada, and it matured in bottle after the second fermentation for at least four years. It has an interesting nose with savory tones rather than fruit-driven. It has eight grams of added sugar but feels very integrated and harmonious. The house style here is elegant rather than powerful. In November, there will be a Brut Nature in this Macabeo-based range.
