2015 Quinta da Muradella Gorvia Tinto

93
"The red 2015 Gorvia is produced with grapes cropped from the same one-hectare vineyard as the white of the same name, on a south-facing slate slope in the surroundings of the Monterrei Castle. It's a Mencía-based blend, with some 5% Bastardo and Caíño Redondo. It fermented in an open stainless steel vat with 60% full clusters and a very long maceration, was kept there for six months and then put in used 300- and 500-liter casks. There is a combination of ripeness and freshness that is unusual. None of the wines here show any oak, and they are on the elegant, rather than powerful, side. Having said that, 2015 is very complete, and this has good stuffing, with the finesse I expect in the reds from Muradella. 3,000 bottles were filled in May 2017."
