From one of the region’s best producers, and most coveted single vineyard expressions, the 2018 seems to combine the best qualities of the 2016 and 2017 vintages. Fuller bodied than expected with richness and texture expanding with air. Highly aromatic. Fresh and citrusy with underlying nuances of young spring herbs/grass. Salty ocean brine. Perfect with shellfish or crustaceans!
Previous 2017 vintage – “I found great finesse in the 2017 Albariño El Palomar, which showed superb balance and precision. It’s clean transparent and very expressive, with the dry sensation from the Albariño on granite soils and that certain austerity in the mouthfeel. It’s nicely textured, tasty and long. This should develop beautifully and for a long time in bottle. 4,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2018. 2019-2030″ – 95+ points,
