Description

SW facing, 20 year old vines, 13.5% alcohol, slate soils, no malolactic, aged for one year in used (not new) French oak, w/ light batonnage. РThis is their top end white wine, a wine that they say features more the style of élevage than the naked terroir, but whose minerality still dynamises the denser texture, especially with ageing. I imagine this to be somewhat in the vein of Godello meets white Burgundy, albeit on slate rather than limestone. Judging on the consistency and tastefulness of all things Algueira, not to mention that Luis Guitierrez rated this 2017 at 93 points, it should prove to be a worthy stop.
