2019 Bodegas El Paraguas El Paraguas Atlántico

$26.99
2019 Bodegas El Paraguas El Paraguas Atlántico
Back in stock after selling out last year, this is an incredible Spanish wine that proves that Spain is one of the top old-world values if you know where to look. The age of the vines here is remarkable, and the juice it yields is quite extraordinary, adding to the depth and complexity of this relatively inexpensive wine. Akin to a lovely Chablis, this white wine is worth every penny and is more impressive than bottles twice the price.

Original Offer:

This was wine an amazing revelation after tasting it this week. It all started when wine journalist and winemaker Marcial Pita met award-winning fourth-generation enologist and viticulturist Felicísimo Pereira while sitting at Spanish wine competition panels. They found that they often picked the same wines as the best of each show and decided to team up in 2007 to begin their project. In 2011, they finally released the first vintage of their Ribeiro-based garage winery, Bodegas Paraguas, quickly catching the region's attention and many of the top sommeliers who worked in Spain's Michelin-starred restaurants.
Their vineyards in Ribierio are worked as sustainably as possible. El Parguas Atlántico is a blend of 92% Trexiadura and 8% Albarino from three high-elevation parcels, with 45% of the grapes from vines planted in 1892! The vines are grown on a combination of granite and schist, employing indigenous yeasts, no Malo-lactic fermentation, and aging nine months in 600-liter oak barrels in the cellar.
The Treixadura grape has roots in Christopher Columbus's day when bottles of this varietal were part of his ship's cargo. Unfortunately, the Treixadura grape can be utterly average in the wrong terroir (and in the wrong hands), one of the reasons why it never gained popularity until now. This sleeping giant of white wines from Spain and its magic is best demonstrated in the Ribiero part of the country, where the wine-making technology of the up-and-coming wineries has finally advanced.
The aromatics of this wine a quite memorizing and reminiscent of an excellent Chablis. Savory, Honey, Sweet Citrus, Stone Fruit orchard blossoms, Sweet Green, and Dried Herbs, with pungent minerality, soar from the glass. The palate is focused and pure with stone fruits flavors, saline, flint, and tons of dry extract on the whiplash of a finish. This is an extraordinary white wine that needs to be tried by the European white wine lover, and I will be squireling away a few bottles to watch the evolution over the next couple of years!
