Professional Wine Reviews for Altovinum Evodia 2017

Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
The incredibly perfumed 2017 Evodia was true to its name, as apparently 'evodia' means fragrant in the ancient Greek language. It had been bottled for a few months when I tasted it and it was very harmonious and expressive. They have reduced quantities and raised the price a bit, going into a different segment of the market, definitely a better wine than what I tasted from 2016. It achieved almost 15% alcohol in 2017, one of the earliest harvests of the last 20 years after some spring frosts and a very dry summer. Only 20% of the volume matured in barrel, while the rest was kept in concrete vats for six months. It's very easy to drink, with unnoticeable tannins and a long, lingering finish. Super tasty and impressive for the price.

Rough fresh out of the bottle but like other old vine Spanish Granacha develops complexity and each mouthful becomes a new sensation. Late in bottle: floral notes, mint, and leather. Really worth taking a look at. Worth a whole lot more than what is being charged.

Additional Information on Altovinum Evodia 2017

Winery Altovinum

Country: Spain

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
