This Single Vineyard wine comes from a newly discovered terroir - an untouched plateau rich with Indian cement that imparts a unique minerality to the usually fruity varietal.
On the nose, marked floral profile characteristics of this property, as well as the typical notes of the varietal: plums and fresh red fruit with floral notes and a subtle touch of spices from the local flora. A complex & balanced wine with a mineral texture and long finish.
Pair with slow-braised short ribs, bacon-wrapped dates, or spicy cheeses.
Full medium ruby. Very savory aromas of black fruits, licorice, violet and smoky crushed-stone minerality. Delivers superb texture and concentration for young vines, with its flavors of black fruits, minerals and licorice offering excellent palate coverage without weightiness; a step up on the 2016 bottling in stuffing. Finishes quite long, with ripe, fine-grained tannins. The broadest of these three vineyard-designated '17s, but classically dry and uncompromising in the early going. (from ten-year-old vines planted on limestone soil, which is unusual for Agrelo)Vinous September 2019
