2016 vintage. Flowers and berries. Fresh and juicy with rather rustic tannin. Good value at less than 12 euro.

Great complexity for a wine at this price point! Perfumed floral character, great minerality, balanced and delicious.

This well runs surprisingly deep considering the price. Ripe berries, cocoa, coffee, herbs, burnt caramel. Creamy rich texture.

I completed the Compostela de Santiago in 2016 and was thrilled to see Ultreia in a Binny’s in Chicago. Sadly, I think this 2016 bottle was corked. I’m going to give it another go. The other reviews are great!
