Tasting Notes

"The 2016 7 Fuentes will give you an idea of how the vintage behaved at Suertes del Marqués. They did multiple fermentations, most in concrete but some in stainless steel without temperature control—as the grapes were cooled down—and with indigenous yeasts. They used around 10% full clusters. Some 60% of the volume matured in concrete for nine months, while the rest was in used 500-liter oak barrels and one new 4,500-liter oak foudre. This has even less color than the 2015, and feels sharp, a little raw, very volcanic and peppery, and it feels like there's one extra step in complexity and depth here. The palate is really nice, electric and, curiously enough, seems sharp, but at the same time, it has volume. This could very well be my favorite vintage of 7 Fuentes to date."
