Abel Mendoza Rioja Guardavinas Sin Sulfuroso

Rioja Guardavinas Sin Sulfuroso

They have been experimenting for years with a Tempranillo produced from a specific vineyard in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, very close to the limit with Labastida; the vineyard is biodynamically farmed and the wine was produced in the most natural way possible, then bottled without sulfur. The wine was finally released and called 2014 GuardaviƱas. I'm glad to see that the wine has a serious profile with no deviations; in fact, it feels quite serious and a little closed. It has a bit of a fine carbonic gas that tickles the point of your tongue and probably helps to protect the wine, while at the same time provides freshness. I'm sure this wine should have no problems if it's kept properly. There's more and more proof that unsulfured wines are possible without being faulty; this is one example. Bravo! 1,962 bottles produced. 92/100 Robert Parker
