Colour: Delicate and shiny to look at, with nuances of steely-green. Aroma: Plenty of refreshing mineral intensity with touches of wet stones and herbs, with a few touches hints of rue. Very complex. Flavour: Fresh and intense on entry, with good nerve. Its natural acidity makes it a very fresh wine, and the finish is very long.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Terroir Único Sauvignon Blanc, from a vintage they consider truly exceptional in Gualtallary, is part of a line of varietal wines that are easy to understand but still show the Gualtallary sharp character. This is composed of four different harvests of three different vineyards in different parts of Gualtallary. After a 12-hour cold soak it was pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts for some 12 days at a low temperature (12 degrees Celsius) and was kept in stainless steel vats for two months. The wine is kept with the lees for the first six months or so, and there is a leesy/reductive character that makes the nose a little blurry. But the palate is sharp and austere, mineral and straight, highly mineral, very impressive for the price. The wine I tasted was about to be bottled; maybe that's why it was a little blurry... 16,600 bottles will be filled in September 2016 in one go.
