White Wine Phincas Thousand Milks 2019
Availability: In stock
The maverick winemaker David Sampedro Gil, founder and owner of bodega DSG Vineyards, crafts the splendid white wine Phincas Thousand Milks from a blend of grapes sorted from two vineyards, Finca Lali and Finca La Abejera, located in Rioja Alavesa.
The harvest of this organic white wine was carried out, as with all of the wines made by David Sampedro – one of La Rioja's new "terroirists" - following the specifications of the biodynamic calendar.
The grapes were destemmed, gently stomped and spontaneously fermented in tanks with native yeasts. After that, Phincas Thousand Milks 2019 was aged for 36 months in French oak barrels with frequent lees-stirrings.
Aerate this white wine from Rioja at least 30 minutes before drinking.
Pair this Crianza white wine with shrimp, white meat dishes and baked fish recipes.
The white wine Phincas Thousand Milks is medium yellow with golden and amber tinges.
Deeply mineral and remarkably complex, this blend of Viura, White Grenache and Malvasía suggests hints of white fruit, touches of mint and honey, and notes of exotic spices, toasted wood and balsam.
The ageing on lees has given this wine from Bodegas Bhilar and DSG Vineyards a luscious mouthfeel that, nevertheless, does not prevent the wine from being fresh. Notes of flowers and citrus, with remembrances of spices over a deep, complex mineral background. Intricate and layered, with a lively acidity and a very long finish.
