Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
A contender for the best Spanish white wine ever made, this ’86 Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva was released with thirty years of maturity. It is a spellbinding wine that slowly unfolds its kaleidoscopic layers of tropical and citrus fruits, crushed minerals, salted toffee, savory herbs, earthy truffles, white flower petals and too many more notes to name. Silky yet electric with acidity, this wine glides across the palate with a creamy mouth-feel; it’s an indescribable treat for the senses, and it will drink for decades. A blend of 97% Viura and 3% Malvasía deriving from a vineyard planted in 1945, grapes were crushed in a screwtop wine press and fermented in American oak. The wine aged for about 21 years in American oak barriques, about seven years in concrete tanks, and about three years in bottle; this ’86 Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva went to market in 2016.
