White Wine Phincas Thousand Milks 2013
Availability: Out of stock
Following an old Rioja tradition, David Sampedro Gil, owner of DSG Vineyards, has crafted the exceptional Phincas Thousand Milks from a blend of grapes coming from two estates, called Finca Lali and Finca La Abejera, located in the Rioja Alavesa.
The harvest of this organic white wine was carried out, as with all David Sampedro's wines - a winemaker internationally known, incidentally, as one of La Rioja's new "terroirists" - according to the specifications of the biodynamic calendar.
The whole winemaking process of this Crianza white wine took place inside wooden barrels. Macerated for a week, after a gentle crushing the wine must was fermented in French oak barrels and subsequently aged for 11 months with frequent lees-stirrings.
Properly stored, Phincas Thousand Milks 2013 will improve in the bottle for about 6-8 years.
Aerate 1 hour before drinking.
The wine Phincas Thousand Milks has an intense yellow colour with golden tinges.
Quite young, though already deep and impressively complex. This Rioja white wine suggests some hints of white fruit, touches of mint and honey, smells of exotic spices, subtle notes of toasted wood and balsam. This white wine by DSG Vineyards is particularly remarkable for its rocky minerality.
The ageing on lees has given this white wine from Rioja Alavesa an oily, dense mouthfeel that, nevertheless, does not prevent the wine from being fresh. Notes of flowers and citrus, and remembrances of spices over a deep, complex mineral background. Very well crafted and multi-layered, this white wine by Bodegas Bhilar has a great acidity and an exceptionally long finish
|Our personal opinion||
A first-rate job by David Sampedro, the confidential Phincas Thousand Milks 2013 is a high-end, age-worthy white wine from La Rioja which is different from almost any white wine you might think of. Remarkably complex and nuanced.
