Ultreia, La Claudina, 2020

5 cases, 5 bottles
£37.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Produced from a relatively flat 0.5HA parcel of vines with a south-south east orientation on sandy soils in Valtuille, La Claudina is a warm site producing wines with roundness and complexity. The vines are now 50 years old. Ordinarily Raul encourages a layer of flor to develop over the wine but, as with 2019, the earlier harvest, with a lower pH than usual, makes it more difficult to maintain. Production averages just 1,500- 2,000 bottles a year. Yellow fruits and touches of dried pineapple, jasmine and creamy white flowers, La Claudina sees no topping up, no malo and no battonage and is bottled after a year in barrel.
