Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson

The white 2016 El Jardín de las Iguales Macabeo was produced with grapes from a vineyard planted in 1890 on slate soils. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in second use 500-liter oak barrels for a period of ten months. It has great varietal character and lots of complexity, even if it still feels very young. The palate has electric acidity and great depth of flavor, with good weight and is balanced. I also sampled the 2017 from barrel and the wine is very lively, but seeing how the 2016 has improved I think they need time. In fact, this 2016 is not going to be released until the end of 2019 and the 2017 should not be sold until the end of 2020. 1,485 bottles were filled in January 2018.

Bodegas Frontonio

Bodegas Frontonio is named after Saint Frontonio, patron saint of the north-eastern Spanish town of Epila. Legend says that after Saint Frontonio was beheaded by the Romans, his body was buried in a cemetery and his head cast into the River Ebro. Miraculously his head was found upstream on the bank of the River Jalon, close to where the Bodegas Frontonio winery is located. Exactly as they're presented, they're the wine of a particular land, the résumé of a landscape. A passion...
