STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Rafael Palacios is a legend in the world of wine and especially in Spain. If ever there was a winemaker with the midas touch it is him. He single handedly has revived the fame and allure of the Godello grape, a grape on a stratospheric ascendancy. The vineyard is located in Valle del Bibei in Galicia. The age of the vines for this wine are up to 90 years old.
Many commentators refer to this wine as the ‘Puligny-Montrachet’ of Spain. The wine has been aged in French barriques for 8 months, it is rich, lively and textured from its lees ageing.
Parker rating 95 points “The As Sortes comes from the six oldest plots of Palacios vineyards..and the vines are worked organically….It has a very Burgundian profile...its super serious and somewhat austere, and subtle, a profile I like very much. Only 22,400 bottles produced”.
