Wine tasting notes

Pale yellow color, perfectly clear. Subtle and fragrant on the nose, citrus fruits, deep mineral aroma. In the mouth it is oily, strong, silky, with a large body and sustainable in the finish.

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2018) - 95 pts

Like the Allende Blanco, I also had two vintages to taste from the top red, but this wine is released early, so the oldest vintage this time was the 2018 Mártires. The grapes ripened thoroughly in this late harvest, similar to 2016, but in 2018, picking started even a bit later, the 15th of October. The great thing is that the acidity is still great, and the wine displays bright freshness and very healthy acidity parameters. This single-vineyard white comes from a plot planted in 1970. The bunches were pressed in a vertical press and the juice let to settle for 48 hours, after which time the must was put to ferment with indigenous yeasts in new French barriques for 24 days. The élevage lasted for nine months, and for four of those, the wine was kept with lees that were stirred twice per week. It feels more youthful than the mellow 2019, still undeveloped with a faint reductive character that I like and find in some of my favorite whites from Burgundy, flintstone and toasted sesame seeds with a core of yellow flowers and fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity and a nice thread, textured and tasty. The finish is almost salty. 1,500 bottles were filled in July 2019.
