96 pts Wine Advocate
The second vintage of the surprisingly ethereal and floral red, the 2018 Castiñeiro Espadeiro, is even better than the already impressive debut. Until I tasted this wine, I always thought Espadeiro was a rustic grape, but here the word to describe it is clearly elegance. It's light and translucent, a little like a Poulsard from the Jura, and the nose is an explosion of wild flowers and herbs. The palate is vibrant, with flavors of acid berries and an almost effervescent minerality, like a mini electric shock from licking a granite rock. It's long, precise, symmetric and sharp, defined and focused. It comes from a small plot planted 40 years ago, and it fermented in open-top 500-liter oak barrels and matured in used 225-liter French barriques for six months.
