Ulterior Albillo Real Parcel 7 and 9 Organic 2018, Bodegas Verum
Pale golden colour. Complex aromas of cooking apple combined with toasted nuts and oatmeal biscuits, with a slight waxy character. Good, rich, rounded character in the mouth, with more of that apple fruit character and an impression of blanched almonds, all held together well by finely-balanced acidity. This is reminiscent of Vintage Champagne (without the bubbles) with a touch of Manzanilla. Superb, complex and fascinating wine.
