A fella thought he had picked up the latest release – the 1a saca 2016 – but failed to read the smallprint and here we are with an old favourite.
In my defense, having tried the 2016 recently I knew immediately that this wasn’t it. This one is tasty though: it has opened up a little and I am enjoying it a lot more than I remember – there are some hay bales in the nose, the yeast is seeming more citrus and the vegetable flavours are seeming fruitier, with that zingy salinity in the background and a long, long finish. (A day later it is really singing in fact – lovely fruitful character to it.)
Really good, even if it wasn’t the wine I thought I was buying.
