Parker über: Treixadura Bajo Velo

-- Parker: A wine produced in 2009 that was (wrongly) called Crianza Oxidativa has turned into the 2016 Treixadura Bajo Velo, which is biologically aged (not oxidatively), under a veil of yeasts (bajo velo). This is now Treixadura, different from the 2009, which was Dona Branca, the same as the 2013. In 2016, aside from the variety change, he also tried to contain the character of the veil of the yeasts (the flor), trying to expose the wine to the effect of the yeasts for a shorter period. It took some time to develop, but after a few months, he transferred the wine to stainless steel, where there was less space and oxygen, and the flor came back with less intensity. To me, the effect is a lot subtler, the wine is a lot more mineral, and José Luis told me the veil was thin, more in the style of the Jura than Jerez. It has very good acidity and pungent, tasty flavors, where the soil comes through stronger than the yeasts. My experience is that the effect of the veil grows with time in bottle, because right now it's very mild. The wine matures very slowly in bottle, and with the parameters it has, it should be long lived. 2,300 bottles were filled in March 2018, and it feels like it was bottled yesterday. This has not yet been released. 2016 is a very good year; the wines are evolving nicely, and he's not in a hurry to release it. 94/100

Mein Winzer


Quinta da Muradella ist das Projekt von José Luis Mateo. In Fachkreisen und auch unter Kollegen wird er als der beste Winzer Galiciens gehandelt. 1991 begann er seine große Lebensaufgabe, Winzer zu sein, obwohl es dann noch fast 10 Jahre brauchte, bis der erste etikettierte Wein auf den Markt kam.
