Description

From ancient vines planted before the phylloxera outbreak in the 1870s, the fruit quality reaches another level in El Viejo. As you'd expect, no expense is spared with the winemaking, with 16 months maturation in 100% new French Oak. A wine of great richness, body, power and structure, with a mineral note complemented by the toasty, coffee flavours of the barrels, the tannins are fine and the finish long and satisfying, the 15% alcohol barely noticeable. A beautiful, mellow wine to contemplate life, it's surprisingly versatile for such a rich wine, we even paired with with some oven baked salmon and it went beautifully. Drink now or cellar through 2025.
