Tasting Note:

From selected parcels of the estate’s finest vines in La Horra, averaging 85 years old. An altogether more robust and concentrated expression of Aalto here, with deeper blackcurrant, blackberry, strawberry and spice-driven, mocha fruit, topped with notes of cordite, herb and tobacco. The deep persistence and mineral driven, old vine material of La Horra defines this wine, being both radiant and glossy, but also immensely concentrated and built to last. Aged in 100% new French oak for 19 months. Drink from 2021.
