Review:

The essence of Astrales derives from the roots of the 25 to 80 year-old vines which are deeply rooted in Anguix's calcareous-clay soils. Distributed among small parcels planted in bush formation, the vines must strive hard to achieve adequate yields, battling against the wind, frosts and drought. No herbicides are used and sulphur treatments are kept to a minimum, with the aim of respecting the land's biodiversity.

The winery works with native yeasts and, just as in the field, the intention is to intervene only when considered necessary. Macerations are not meant to be overly long and the plan is for gravity to do the majority of the work. 30% of the casks are renewed annually, so that the oak doesn't have too great an influence on the wine, and despite its 18 months in barrel, the end result is a very well-balanced wine from start to finish.

Behind a very intense depth, the Astrales conceals some delicate aromas of black plums and Picota cherries emerging on a background of robust minerality and a charming balsamic freshness. Woodland blackberries, the odd lactic note and definitely toasty notes from the oak in the form of vanilla and coffee. On the palate, the tannin-acidity amplifies the silky body brimming with character. Mediterranean bushes, ink, cocoa..., its aromatic array seems endless. It takes its leave with the right amount of dryness so as to be elegant and a fruit content so high it lingers long in the memory.

War ganz überrascht, dass der Wein laut Etikett 15 % Volumenalkohol hat, im Internet und auf der Rechnung stehen 14,5 % Alk. Den Wein werde ich noch 3- 4 Jahre lagern und dann genießen, wird bestimmt ein inhaltsvoller Wein werden ?

Dieser füllige, recht komplexe Tropfen von Eduardo kann seine Verwandtschaft zum Vater Mariano nicht ganz leugnen, kann aber nicht mit ihm Schritt halten. Die weiteren Jahrgänge werden bestimmt noch zulegen, denn auch Eduardo ist ehrgeizig.

Black fruit dominating here, bold and good structured, Astrales own style can be read easily as usual. Will be paired well to red meats but I prefer it solo.
