Quinta Milú, La Cometa, Ribera del Duero, Spain 2018
“Germán Blanco is a revolutionary in Ribero del Duero, translating the traditional big, powerful, oak-aged powerhouses to elegant, full-flavoured wines, with silky texture and restrained power. Average vine-age is 60 years old for La Cometa and the vineyards are high altitude at approx. 900m above sea level. Totally de-stemmed and it’s bottled un-fined and un-filtered. Brilliant with BBQ or lamb roasted on vine cuttings… if you ever get the chance!
