When to drink this wine? : 2023 - 2029
Tasted by Luis Gutierrez in 2023: "The second wine, in Bordeaux style, is the Macán Clásico 2019, a more concentrated and powerful wine from a warmer and drier year that was saved by the 80 liters of rain from the first half of September It fermented in stainless steel with 10% of their own yeasts, and the aging was 22% in stainless steel and the rest in new and used oak barrels, mainly French but with around 5% of 'American, and lasted 12 months. It has a moderate 14% alcohol content, smooth acidity and good freshness and balance. 2019 was a dry, hot year where they did gentle vinification to avoid hard tannins. The nose is ripe without excess, and the oak is well integrated. The palate is juicy and round, with fine tannins and a velvety texture."
