Smoky, toasty and without a doubt barrel fermented. This feels a little raw and tannic for a white wine, but it's also grippy, elevated and fruity. On the palate, things open with a blast of apple and raw oak; the finish is long and tastes of butterscotch and dried apple. A classy wine from some of the oldest vines in Rueda.
