Parker über: El Jardin de las Iguales Blanco

-- Parker: It's always interesting to taste two vintages side by side, and when it's the top white and from two vintages like 2017 and 2018, even more so. The 2018 El Jardín de las Iguales Macabeo comes from a later harvest when yields were better, which resulted in more wine. Furthermore, it was an easier and more complete vintage, and the wine shows it. The full clusters underwent a 40-hour cold soak before being pressed, and the juice was put to ferment in a 1,100-liter oak foudre, where it was kept with lees (but without bâtonnage) until it was transferred to 500-liter oak barrels to complete its élevage. The aromatic profile of this 2018 is very different from the 2017 I tasted next to it. There is great purity, transparency and finesse here, the wine is elegant and subtle, deliciously floral, with tons of energy in the palate, citrus, mineral and long. It's floral, but there are also salty notions, the wine made me think of food. It feels weightless, but it has power and energy. This got me gobsmacked. Truly amazing. It's very drinkable now but should develop beautifully in bottle. 1,320 bottles were filled in February 2020. 96/100

Angefangen hat bei Fernando Mora alles mit seiner Badewanne zu Hause in Saragossa, dort machte er seine ersten Gehversuche als Winemaker. Und das Ergebnis war durchaus trinkbar. Hochmotiviert war das der Anlass, nach geeigneten Weinbergen und Parzellen zu suchen.
