I loved the 2016 Ultreia El Rapolao, which opened in a very spectacular way with time in the glass. It has notes of wild berries flowers and herbs intermixed with some earthy notes. The palate is intense but terrifically balanced, with very fine tannins but keeping a touch of rustic elegance that gives it character. This comes from one of the oldest plots in Rapolao, one of the cooler vineyards in Valtuille. It has unusual depth and intensity, and a rare combination of power and elegance. 1,200 bottles.

I tasted a great majority of 2016s, which is a superb vintage, one of the best ever, combining elegance and power. Pérez thinks 2018 is going to follow the line of 2016, perhaps even better. Something to look forward to...
