When a relatively inexpensive wine, that was made well with good grapes evolves into something amazing! This was an unexpected surprise. Most #verdejo is thought of as seasonal and no shelf life but this is killing it right now. #rueda #spain — 16 days ago

There are so many marketing lies to this wine, I don’t even know where to begin. That it’s 95% #Garnacha from vines older than 30 years old! Lie. It sells for 10-11€ in #Spain and then it says that it’s fermented with active yeasts and it’s organic. Okay. Right. They make almost 700k bottles of this wine. Organic treatments and products aren’t cheap. 30+ Old Garnacha needs to be hand-harvested and that’s not cheap. I don’t know anyone spontaneously fermenting more than a half-a-million bottles of anything it’s super risky and then the guy makes it seems like a single vineyard wine because he puts ‘Monte Yerga’ and ‘La Montesa’ but it actually comes from multiple vineyards from 90 hectares! 14% alcohol ? Really Garnacha? From Alfaro? There’s no way in hell. Or he’s adding water or he’s using reverse osmosis which also adds a water-alcohol solution. There’s no way this wine is naturally fermented to 14%! But no way. Then on his description he says ‘Atlantic Influences’!!! There aren’t any Atlantic influences in #riojaoriental #bullshit #marketing — 2 months ago

50-year old wine. Drinking an old wine is adventurous and exciting. Upon opening, it was clear from the aroma and color that the wine was still alive! We could still taste the remaining fruits supported by the good balance of acidity. The wine went downhill after two glasses. With social-distancing in place, it was a quiet night but a wonderful moment tasting its history.



50年前のワイン、果たしてどんな味わいを見せてくれるのか。古いワインを開けるはワクワク、ドキドキしますね。開けた時の香り、色合いから、これはまだいける!と期待が高まります。未だ僅かにフルーツ感が感じられ、酸とのバランスも悪くない。最初の2杯以降は下り坂でしたが、歴史を感じることのできた静かな一時でした。
