Domino del Aguila Blanco 2014

"The second vintage produced, the 2014 Blanco unfortunately is still not allowed to carry the Ribera del Duero appellation even though it's produced with the traditional white Albillo grape grown in old vineyards in the zone. The 2014 Blanco is nothing short of spectacular. It's produced with the grapes from individual ancient vines planted in old, organically farmed vineyards on clay and limestone soils at some 800 meters in altitude. It has moderate alcohol (13%) and a very low pH (3.08), which translates into great freshness and a sharp and serious palate obtained by fermenting the juice from foot-trodden full clusters with indigenous yeasts in concrete and oak vats for about one year, during which time the wine was kept with the lees that were not stirred or racked. It was hand bottled without fining or filtering in March 2017. It has the flinty, sesame seed-like reduction I find in some fine white Burgundies. It has a fresh and balanced palate and is terribly mineral. It's even better than the initial 2012, and especially the oak feels better integrated. My guess is this white is going to age nicely and for a long time in bottle. This has to be among the finest unfortified whites from Spain. Bravo!" - Luis Gutiérrez
