"...This is super young and revealed a faintly reductive Listán Blanco character I often find in volcanic soils. It has a spicy side too (cloves?) that made it pungent and expressive. The palate showed good freshness, more vibrant than the 2016, despite the natural conditions of the vintage. Quite remarkable. This is the best and also the higher-production vintage for this wine, as some 9,500 bottles were produced. It was bottled in August 2018."
