El Puño Blanco 2015

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  628107

The 2015 El Puño Blanco is a blend of 55% Macabeo, 35% Viognier and the rest Garnacha Blanca from different parts of Calatayud, but sold without appellation because Viognier is not authorized in the rules of the appellation. The Viognier is quite evident in the nose with plenty of peach aromas. It fermented in stainless steel and used oak barrels (300- and 500-liter), and then blended and put in Flextank egg-shaped containers for 15 months in contact with the lees. It has good volume in the palate and a tasty, almost salty finish. It's powerful in a Rhône-ish style, with 14.5% alcohol, so not a shy white. 5,500 bottles were filled in May 2017. Drink Date: 2017-2020. Score - 91. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, June 30, 2017)
