Heiner Lobenberg über:
Caracol dos Profetas Fazendas da Areia 2021


Lobenberg: Caracol wird aus einer autochthonen Rebsorte der Insel Porto Santo gemacht, die wahrscheinlich mit der Listrão, alias Palomino Fino, verwandt ist. Die alten Reben stehen auf sandigen und kalkhaltigen Böden und die Erträge mini. »Fazendas da Areia« kommt von den besten Parzellen der Profetas. Der Wein vibriert mit Energie und Spannung im Glas. Er ist unglaublich frisch und präzise, beinahe salzig. Im Mund hat er eine laserstrahlartige Brillanz auf der Zunge, immer geradeaus laufend und puristisch. Der Wein will gar nicht mehr aufhören und hallt minutenlang nach. Es gibt gerade Mal 1.200 Flaschen von diesem hochindividuellen Wein. Echt spannend, was Antonio Macanita hier entdeckt hat! 94/100


Parker über: Caracol dos Profetas Fazendas da Areia

-- Parker: The 2021 Caracol dos Profetas Vinho do P. Santo Fazendas da Areia is all Caracol, an indigenous grape that the winery says is probably related to Listrão (hope that helps, but that is also known as Palomino Fino). It was aged for 10 months in used French oak and comes in at 12.6% alcohol. This is not a big wine that will make anyone declare it lush or rich, but it is a very fresh one. Bright and lively, it is impressive for its tension and finish, but it is well balanced, and the acidity is well integrated. It adds a somewhat different flavor nuance of some toast and nuts but nothing intense. This is a wine that leans more to structure than fruitiness. It seems to declare its seriousness from the get-go, happily managing to do that without relying on the wood. The acidity gobbles up the wood rather well. The only remaining question is where this is going and for how long. Let's start here and take that in stages. It has a good chance to develop and improve over the next several years. There were just 1,200 bottles produced. 93/100


Jancis Robinson über: Caracol dos Profetas Fazendas da Areia

-- Jancis Robinson: Very pale gold. Delicate, stony aroma, more delicate than the Listrão but on the day after opening, more spicy and richer. Really stony/mineral and with a herby citrus freshness. On the palate, this is even more salty than the Listrão. It has similarly very high acidity but is tighter, more precise, more linear over the palate. Intense fresh salty-citrus flavour with mouth-watering persistence. Goes on and on. Intensely pure, the sharp edges of the acidity rounded out by an unexpectedly firm but smooth texture. 17/20

Weingut über: Caracol dos Profetas Fazendas da Areia

-- Weingut: Caracol is one of the traditional varieties on the island of Porto Santo. There are several stories and myths about its potential origin, from a Mr. Caracol who brought it and planted it. However, the scientific bibliography seems to link this variety with the “Cédres” variety and, when analyzed, it seems to have a genetic relationship very close to Listrão, and could be a possible descendant from the Canaries. The little information we have is that it has existed in Porto Santo for longer than memory remembers. “Fazendas da Areia” refers to the plots where our best grapes from this harvest come from, with “Fazenda” being the term used locally to designate place, small property, farm and “Areia” the type of soil existing in these places, limestone sandstones res,ulting from the accumulation over millions of years. The grapes were harvested manually, on a Saturday in the island of Porto Santo, chosen bucket by bucket and loaded onto a cold truck, for transport by boat to the island of Madeira (since it is not legal to make wine in Porto Santo). At 1:00 am, whole bunch press to decantation deposits inside a refrigerated container, with three pressing fractions being separated, without any use of SO2. The first and second press fractions were fermented in 228 L used French oak barrels. Aged for 10 months. Crystalline straw yellow color. Intense nose, citrus notes, orange peel with some iodine and gunpowder. Fresh, textured attack, unctuous- ness, concentration in the mid-tasting, good freshness and persistence.
