■ Adega Algueira, Meren­zao, Ribeira Sacra 2014

This wine trans­forms the drama in the land­scape into suave el­e­gance, bal­anced smooth­ness and some­thing de­li­ciously magic. 95 Drink 2017-2021 Zárate, Caíño Tinto, Rías Baixas 2015

There is a touch of ge­nius in this wine. I got the im­pres­sion it is made for the long-run, that time will dis­cover its ac­tual depth. Its un­der­stated com­plex­ity could be the def­i­ni­tion of At­lantic char­ac­ter: fresh­ness, min­er­al­ity, salin­ity, suave­ness, length. 94 Drink 2017-2022 Bodega Vi­das, Vides y Vi­nos, Cien Mon­tañas Car­rasquín, Can­gas 2015 Can­gas could be­come a classic re­gion, with dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter and a topqual­ity grape va­ri­ety. Light­ness of body com­bines with den­sity of flavour, orig­i­nal and long. I pre­fer it young as it is now. Very lit­tle pro­duced. 93 Drink 2018-2019
