Arrives Fall 2022

The 2020 La Mimbrera Graciano is the third vintage of the pure Graciano from the first vineyard he planted in the same plot as the regular old-vine La Mimbrera. It surprised me with its floral nose that is perfumed and elegant and its vibrant palate, which does not have the depth and complexity of the old vines (yet). It’s spicy and peppery and has a moderate 13% alcohol with a pH of 3.54 and 6.5 grams of acidity, which makes it come through as a little austere, with some tannins showing up in the finish. 1,000 bottles were filled in February 2022. 93+pts Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate
