Finco Sandoval 'Salia'
From Manchela and now made by the super Javi Revert.
"The 2020 Salia has a slightly different blend, 60% Syrah, 25% Bobal, 10% Touriga Nacional and 5% Garnacha, with a little bit more ripeness (13.5% alcohol) and more acidity and freshness. It fermented with 40% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and had 15 days of maceration. It matured in 300-liter French oak barrels for 10 months. It comes through as more nuanced and complete, very clean, with the 2020 Mediterranean profile. The wine is more expressive of the varieties, especially the Syrah. This is juicy and chewy, with fine tannins and very good balance. This has to be the finest Salia to date. 13,000 bottles produced." 93 points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
