The Wine Advocate

91/100

The Wine Advocate - I tasted two vintages of the dry Moscatel de Alejandra, starting with the 2015 Mountain Blanco, from a very warm year when they started harvesting very early, during the first half of August. They consider it a very good year for the dry wine, and it rained at the end of the vintage, which complicated the sun drying of the grapes used for the sweet wines. It's varietal and minty, with a fresh palate and a finish with the classical bitter twist. It's quite original, as it shows freshness and doesn't overwhelm with the aromas, as they try to control the ripeness of the grapes. 14.500 bottles produced.

Telmo Rodriguez

Telmo Rodriguez is one of the greatest of Spanish winemakers. In a fashion not dissimilar to Alavaro Palacios, Telmo travelled and learnt for many years before returning home to Rioja, where he has improved yet further the quality of a wine that was already outstanding. In addition he supervises négociant projects throughout Spain. One of his most acclaimed projects is in Ribera del Duero.

The charismatic Telmo has something of the prodigal about him, having now returned to his Riojan homestead to energise the great house of Remelluri. One should not overlook, however, his other properties, which explore some of the lesser known areas of Spain and in each case seek to make superlative and characterful wines. Ribera del Duero is, of course, far from a lesser-known area, so it is to Telmo’s great credit, but to no–one’s particular surprise, that the wines he makes at Matallana are amongst the very best here too.
