Tasting Notes

"A white blend of Godello, Albariño and Treixadura from slate soils, the 2017 Cortezada is named after the vineyards where the vines grow and comes from a very mineral plot that provides strong minerality. I find it phenomenal even if a little too young and faintly reductive, so if you're going to pull the cork anytime soon, consider giving it an energetic decanting and some time before drinking it. It has a combination of wild herbs, nettle and fennel, bay leaf, white pepper, something citrusy and a bitter twist, which give it complexity. It has a super expressive palate with underlying minerality and is nicely textured and tasty, with an almost salty finish. This should develop beautifully in bottle."
