Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson

The single vineyard 2016 Os Cantals is pure Garnacha from stony soils. The destemmed grapes, along with 20% foot trodden whole clusters, fermented in 600-liter oak bocoy with indigenous yeasts and the wine matured in second use oak barriques for 12 months. There is a little more impact from the oak here, but as with the rest of these wines, this 2016 is clearly one step above the 2015 and it's savory and expressive, with a very tasty finish, with a bitter twist that adds to its complexity. 6,180 bottles were filled in September 2018.

Tasted blind. The wine is both: gentle and concentrated. A pure expression of wild blue and dark small berries, sweet fruit. Sensation of aromatic weight and delicacy holding the typical high alcohol of the region. It is rounded, pleasant and showing a creamy and caressing fruit. The intriguing still-young flavours show certain mineral character. A new promising cuvée from Fernando Mora MW, to follow.
