Eccellente Rioja Blanco. Perfettamente abbinato ad un prosciutto iberico bellota. Colore oro. Naso intenso e complesso di idrocarburi, miele. fiori secchi, camomilla. Meraviglioso in bocca dove lo stile ossidativo che domina la fase iniziale viene prima equilibrato e poi dominato da una bella spina acida. Gramìnde sapidità e mineralità. Lunghissimo finale.
What a wonderful bottle. Golden yellow. Nose of pretrol, oil, honey, bee-wax, dried apricot. Lightly bodied, bay complex in the mouth, sustained by a strong acidity. Very long finish. Great qpr at 16,5€
Che bella bottiglia, finalmente bevuta con calma. Giallo dorato. Naso di idrocarburi, patè di olive, miele, cera d'api, albicocca disidratata. In bocca è di corpo esile, ma complesso sorretto da una bella spina acida. Finale molto lungo
I've had 4-5 bottles of this since its release about 4 years ago and this bottle was by far the best I've had. I'd say it was the best Gravonia I've had to date. The nose was really unchanged with walnut skin, almond oil, apricot, and honey but there was a dramatic shift in presence. In previous bottles there taste was fairly robust up front, thin in the middle, and bitter/acidic/flavorful finish. Now it is seemless and delicious. Yes there are lots of flavors of dry butterscotch, orange zest, raw cashews and plenty of acidity but my favorite part is how it's so balanced and elegant at this point. And there is half a bottle left to see what a day in the fridge will do.
