Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson

The 2018 El Cismático was produced with old-vine Garnacha from the villages of Villarroya de la Sierra and Cervera de la Cañada, four small vineyards. It fermented in open-top vats with 20% full clusters and was punched down by hand. They wine matured in second use 500-liter French oak barrels and some concrete for 13 months. As a lot of the reds are completely unoaked, this felt quite oaky and creamy, one that needs a little more time in bottle to absorb the impact from the wood. The wine is floral, expressive, showy and exuberant, peachy and juicy, with very fine tannins, with good acidity and balanced alcohol, harmonious, reflecting a slow and good ripening of the grapes. Most of these reds are showy and exuberant, not shy wines at all, generous and hedonistic. 4,100 bottles and 150 magnums produced.

Norrel and his family came to Spain in 2003 and by 2004 he was already producing his first wine in the DO Calatayud appellation. Over 25 years of experience in the winemaking business were reflected in his very first bottle and ever since then the popularity of his wines has risen even further. It was back in 1990 when Norrel, with his passion for wine, started to work...
