Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The white with more complexity and nuance is the 2021 5V. It's a blend of five varieties, hence the name, but in 2021 the blend is slightly different, with more Garnacha Blanca and Viura; the breakdown is 30% Viura, 30% Garnacha Blanca, 20% Tempranillo Blanco, 10% Malvasía and 10% Torrontés. It has very good ripeness and aromatic complexity but with subtleness and elegance. It has more complexity and somehow feels more open and expressive than any of the other whites. This matured in barrel with the lees and bâtonnage for five months. It has 14% alcohol, a pH of 3.3 and 5.7 grams of acidity (measured in tartaric acid per liter). 4,116 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2022.
