Wine tasting notes

Glossy crimson-red in colour. The nose reveals inviting cherry aromas with nuances of mocha and floral violets. The palate is full of exuberant rich blackcurrants, blueberries and damsons, underpinned by savoury spice and balanced acidity. An impressive wine that is extremely moreish!

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2018) - 93 pts

The truly impressive 2018 Ultreia Saint Jacques transcends its price category. They destemmed more grapes because they fermented it in the oak vats they bought from Vega Sicilia to use in the new winery, where it macerated for two months and then matured in used barrels for nine to 10 months. The secret is to use very good grapes from very good vineyards. The wine is clean, precise and fresh, and the oak is super-subtle, almost unnoticeable. The palate reflects a fluid wine of pleasure, a red of thirst. This is the wine where they have invested more, and 2018 has to be the finest vintage to date. They did 150,000 bottles of this in the outstanding 2018 vintage. It was bottled in October/November 2019.
