-- Parker: The Cariñena 2016 Arbossar shows very different from the Dits del Terra. This comes from their oldest vineyard, which delivers very low yields, in some parts no more than 300 or 400 grams per plant. 2016 was a warm year, but not as warm as 2017. The idea is to use less and less oak and, in some wines, use only concrete. In fact, Arbossar is one of the wines that will be aged exclusively in concrete. In 2017, they removed the last 500-liter oak barrels and only used oak foudres and concrete. The élevage has also been shortened, and the wine is put in bottle earlier, as sometimes a too-long aging tires and oxidizes the wines. This is a very elegant Cariñena, with floral notes, clean berries, fine minerality, some spices and a very tasty finish. Simply superb. 4.664 bottles were filled in July 2018. 96/100
Was passiert, wenn ein Münchner im fernen Spanien ein Weingut aufbaut, sich das Knowhow von einem der größten Erzeuger Südafrikas einholt und beide das Ziel haben, nach burgundischem Vorbild Weine von Weltformat zu erzeugen?
