Ossian, Rueda Blanco, Castilla y Léon, 2015

Tasting Note:

From a blend of the oldest and most characterful parcels in Nieva, the Ossian vineyards are blessed with a seam of sandy soils that have protected the vines from the dreaded Phylloxera louse, enabling an enormous amount of old vine material to build up and survive for over a hundred years. The 2015 Ossian carries itself with beautiful volume and richness; a textbook sun-kissed vintage coming after the cooler, wetter 2014 which saw the water table rise and allow soft, steady ripening in 2015. Subtly honeyed with waxed lemon and stone fruits, layered with toasted spices and subtle notes of almond and salted nuts. Raised in 30% new oak for 12 months in a combination of 228 and 600L barrels. Concentrated with fabulous length and intensity, oodles of aging potential but so seductive and delicious already. Drink 2016-2025.
