Review:

Vega Sicilia's Único has become one of the unquestionable references amongst the world's best wines and a legend in Spain's wine-making history. Meticulous care is taken over every detail involved in its production and the end result is an exceptional Gran Reserva wine, with great elegance, balance, concentration and complexity, and the ability to maintain its characteristics in bottle for years.

A Tinto Fino (Ribera's Tempranillo) wine incorporating a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon (around 5-15% depending upon the vintage), this classic is only produced in good years and undergoes lengthy barrel ageing and considerable time in bottle before release.

A crucial factor in reaching ‘unique’ premier quality standard, oak ageing is a complicated process at Vega Sicilia and traditionally lasted for 10 years, but nowadays company oenologist Xavier Ausás aims for 5-6 years. It occurs in various stages: firstly, after fermentation, the wine spends around 20 months in wooden vats, followed by roughly the same length of time in new casks; it then matures in semi-new casks for up to two years or more on average, and afterwards about 24 months in large-capacity wooden vats. Resting in bottle allows a further lengthy repose before release.

Exuding an array of complex aromas, the wine picks up the fine wood tones and carries them right the way through on the palate, discreetly and subtly, but persistently. This is a powerful, opulent wine, with flavours that time enhances, and a mythical aura making it an absolute must for every wine-lover to yearn to try.
