Rioja (Labastida)

'Las Beatas' Single Vineyard 2016 (pre-order only)

Size

Bluebells and violet, fennel, cherry blossom and fresh clay soil. It is very floral, very much of the soil, lovely and very delicate. Open, purple and electric. There's pomegranate in the violet, angelica, mountain air, and lots of space in a palate which is fine and clear, featuring very lovely delicate tannins. The brilliant, luminous fruit folds into astonishingly good natural structure, but really it is too good for mere words.
