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.

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

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
