"The 2020 Certezas is a lot more exotic than the 2019 I tasted next to it, with some tropical notes despite having a lot less alcohol (12.8% here versus 13.7% alcohol in the 2019), but the palate keeps the backbone of freshness and acidity. The Semillon was ready before the Chenin this year, when they harvested early. This is richer, has a tender mouthfeel and a long finish. 1,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021."

"From El Peral, Tupungoto, the 2020 Semillon Certezos was fermented in foudres and aged with coarse lees for o year in used barrels. Golden in color. Features o nose of honey and subtle notes from the aging process such as vanilla, chamomile and littlle smoke. It's terse and dry in the mouth with o packaged, slightly saline freshness. An effortlessly elegant wine, o real treat. "
