World-class Riojas – Bodegas Exopto, El Espinal de Exopto Genérico 2017

Bodegas Exopto, El Espinal de Exopto Genérico 2017

The second vintage of this brilliant Maturana is every bit as good as the first. Made with grapes from Miguel Ángel Mato’s isolated parcel at 650m in San Vicente, this was picked on 20 October and has fine tannins and flavours of leaf, graphite and black cherry, as well as a wonderful fragrance and clove spice.
