Description


From the producer: Here, on the eastern edge of Spain's Sierra de Gredos mountains, a renowned Madrid doctor named Vincente Alvarez-Villamil purchased land in 1923. The site, which at that time was a full day's travel from Madrid, spoke of its Celtic past, with ancient bears carved from boulders to mark forests dedicated to the hunt goddess. A single vineyard called Arroyo del Tortolas with vines over 65 years old is a North facing vineyard at 800+ meters in altitude. The 2018 Arroyo del Tórtolas achieved full ripeness and 15.5% alcohol despite which the wine doesn't feel warm or too ripe. It's balsamic and aromatic, and although it feels a little shaken by the recent bottling, it feels very complete, with a little more of everything but still in balance. I believe this will make a beautiful bottle of Arroyo del Tórtolas with a few years in bottle. 3,300 bottles were filled in February 2020.
