Malleolus de Sanchomartin heeft 18 maanden gerijpt op Frans eiken.
Indrukwekkende, elegante aromatische wijn. Rijp zwart fruit, mineralen, "roasted tones", prachtige tannines en een fantastische afdronk.
Goed op dronk, maar kan zich tenminste tot 2023 nog verder ontwikkelen.
The Wine Advocate:
"The other single-vineyard Tempranillo is the 2011 Malleolus de Sancho Martín, always the more backward of the two. It is sourced from a small (0.84-hectare) single plot of vines planted in 1964 on chalk soils that provide more austere wines. It went through malo in French barriques, better suited for wines from chalky soils. Like the rest of the top of the range, it matured in French oak barrels for some 18 months before bottling. Although it feels a little reticent, it slowly develops notes of minerals, red and black fruit, spices and nicely integrated oak. The palate also shows good integration, balance and elegance, with chalky tannins that are very fine and a finish where the oak-related flavors are intermixed with subtle minerality, giving it a little salty sensation. It will be much better with some time in bottle."
