I loved the 2016 Ultreia El Rapolao, which opened in a very spectacular way with time in the glass. It has notes of wild berries flowers and herbs intermixed with some earthy notes. The palate is intense but terrifically balanced, with very fine tannins but keeping a touch of rustic elegance that gives it character. This comes from one of the oldest plots in Rapolao, one of the cooler vineyards in Valtuille. It has unusual depth and intensity, and a rare combination of power and elegance. 1,200 bottles.

Description

Raúl Pérez knows like no-one else how to achieve the right balance between finesse and strength.
This is no doubt the most elegant of all the reds at Ultreia.

Vinification

Raul interferes very little in the cellar. His reds are vinified in old casks, the bunches are left whole, nothing is added or corrected.
The wine is aged under a veil of natural yeast or flor, that protects it from oxidation, so no sulphur has to be added. These yeast are naturally present in the cellar, so Raul used this veil for his red as well as his whites.

Tasting analysis

The red and black berries make one think of a cool climate, they are also typical of the Mencia grape. On perceives also some smoky, flintstone notes. The wine is juicy but solid on the palate, with a tannic structure that evokes a Northern red. Minerality comes back in the fresh and elegant finish. Still very young but already very pleasant to drink.

Storage potential

10-15 years.

Serving

16°-18°C.
