2020 Comando G Camino del Pilar Blanco

There is a still unnamed white matured in glass demijohn with flor for one year and one year in a 600-liter Manzanilla Sherry cask that they've been wanting to produce to obtain a sharp and austere Albillo, something not easy with the variety, for which the flor acts like a liposuction for the white, making the wine sharper and also amplifying the granite sensation on the palate. This was produced with Albillo from Cadalso de los Vidrios and is still unnamed, but let's call it 2018 Bota for now. The price was still undecided, and the wine I tasted was still in the butt. The idea is that it spends one year in the butt and then another year in demijohn; but for this first vintage, it was the other way round, spending one year in demijohn first and then one year in butt, because they didn't get the Sherry barrels in time. The veil of yeasts is thin, and the character is more Jura than Sherry, with nutty and spicy aromas and a very mineral palate. This will always be a single vintage and non-fortified. They expect to fill some 1,400 half-liter bottles before the end of 2020.  94-95 points - Luis Gutierrez (tasted out tank in mid 2020). The Wine Advocate, November 2020.
