2013 Ossian Capitel Verdejo - 93 PTS - WA

wa93"The top of the range here is produced with the oldest vines Ossian has, in the cold village of Nieva (Segovia) on slate soils at 900 meters altitude. The 2013 Capitel is truly different from all the rest of the wines I've tasted from the region; there are not that many vineyards on slate soils. There are some fine balsamic and creamy aromas over a core of yellow plums, Indian spices and wet stones (a touch of moss? freshly cut grass on wet stones?). The palate is powerful, with pungent flavors and a marked bitter note in the finish; it is very intense and almost piquant. It has the concentration, structure and acidity to develop nicely in bottle. Some 2,200 bottles were produced. - Luis Gutierrez"
