Professional Wine Reviews for Akilia K Blanco 2014

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
The white, called simply 2014 K is a blend of 75% Palomino and 25% Doña Blanca. The grapes come from a small 0.2-hectare plot at 750 meters altitude and the wine matured in contact with the lees for five months before being bottled in March 2015. It's quite pale, austere, with some balsamic notes, something herbal (fennel) and a mineral, flinty feeling that made me think of a Riesling. The palate is fresh and very tasty, medium-bodied, with a salty finish. 2,000 bottles produced.
Rated 92 by James Suckling
Chalky straw and peppery elements, too. There's a little age here that has pulled primary fruit down into the wine. The palate has a tangy lemon citrus edge. Concise and dry. Drink now.

Winery Akilia

Region: Castilla Y Leon

Castilla y Leon is one of the oldest wine regions in Europe, and is a fascinating area for those passionate about the finest Spanish wines. For centuries, Castilla y Leon has attracted attention, due to its fascinating history, stunning architecture and interesting food and wine traditions. The vast plain of Castilla y Leon has developed a culture which is all its own, and the wines which have been made for centuries in the historic wineries of the region do all they can to reflect this. As such, many of the most distinctively 'Spanish' wines of the country hail from this region, including those made with classic Spanish grapes, such as the robust and spicy Tempranillo, or the more fruity, aromatic white Verdejo and Viura varietals.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
