Mustiguillo, Finca Terrerazo, Vino de Pago, Spain 2017
(at London, 28 Oct 2020)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2027
A Vino de Pago wine sourced from Dolomite limestone vineyards 800m above the Mediterranean sea. Grapes are manually harvested then fermented in French oak. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation for 5-8 weeks, after which maturation takes place for 14 months in a combination of French oak casks and barrels. Sarah Jane Evans MW Expresses the youthful cherry and citrus intensity of Bobal, not losing the underlying savoury notes. Still feels very youthful and has the capacity to age and develop. A wine that has a sense of place. Christine Parkinson Inky black in colour, with dried herbs and raw fruit on nose and palate. A piquant, spicy, savoury note too. Just about showing some evolution. Very creamy texture, layers of oak and flavour, lively acidity and a real poise and excitement. Beth Willard Raisined and almost port-like on the nose. Full of dates, dried figs and chocolate. Dense with well integrated oak and a spicy finish. A big, intense wine.
